The Parklands

The Parklands of Floyds Fork — A Dream Realized By 21st Century Parks  

The Parklands is a systemic, world-class addition to Louisville’s parks system that includes four major parks linked by a scenic park drive, a world-class urban trail system, and a remarkable water trail, all tracing Floyds Fork, a classic Kentucky stream. The public/private project is unique in the region and unlike anything currently in development across the country. This is a city-shaping model for the world to follow.

Encompassing nearly 4,000 acres in eastern Jefferson County, The Parklands offers something for people of all ages and abilities.
