Tyler Park in Louisville
So many parks to choose from this summer, check out Tyler Park playground!
Did you know that Tyler Park Louisville has had a beautiful renovation?
Be sure to check out Tyler Park Playground in The Highlands in Louisville, Kentucky. Nestled 3 miles southeast of downtown, this Olmstead-inspired park spawns 13 acres with a unique stone tunnel that leads you from the walking path, playground and sprayground, across Baxter Ave to tennis courts, a cookout area and more.
Tyler Park got a wonderful facelift back in the beginning of Spring 2022 and now boasts updated play structures, a sprayground, tennis court renovations, and extra park benches. The heat is intense in the summer and most families look for parks that have ample shade to protect their kiddos and themselves.
You can spend the entire day there picnicking, walking, playing and cooling off. It’s tucked away and seems like a small park, but honestly packs so much into its nested space in a neighborhood.
Tyler Park features lots of trees to help shade you and the kids and the best part is that their natural playground happens to fall right under a canopy of trees.
If the heat becomes too intense in the summer months, you can run through the fountains at the sprayground! It has been updated and is a great, manageable size particularly for young children. Bring buckets or plastic cups for spilling and dumping, and plenty of sunscreen.
Also, Louisville Family Fun has a list of TONS of spraygrounds in the area. You can fill your summer with splashing all over Kentuckiana!
The park features a tot playground for the young ones and a bigger structure with taller slides and a spiderweb for climbing for the older ones. The swing area has toddler swings and big kids were enjoying jumping off as they swung high into the clouds…check out the picture below!
