Parklands of Floyds Fork Story on

It feels like I don’t agree with our local and state governments very often these days. But one thing I whole-heartedly applaud is our leaders’ efforts to build and brand Louisville the City of Parks.

Construction on Beckley Creek Park began in 2011 and portions are already open! The primary entrance is located on Shelbyville Road, just East of the Gene Snyder Expressway.

You see, our national reputation isn’t very good.

You’d think the land of Bluegrass, home of the Kentucky Derby, with the world’s leading thoroughbred horses, our status as a “green” city would be appropriate.

Sadly, this isn’t the case.

According to the Trust for Public Land’s (TPL) ParkScore, Louisville is currently ranked a disappointing 38th out of the 40 metro markets considered.
