Review of Seneca Park in Louisville

Since springtime has finally decided to show herself here in Louisville, I took advantage of a gorgeous, brilliant sunny morning recently and took my 20-month-old to Seneca Park for a couple of hours.

The excitement […]

Review of Thurman-Hutchins Park

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine and I were looking for a playground we had not taken our kids to yet and decided to check out Thurman-Hutchins Park at 3734 River Rd. near Indian Hills Trail. It is just across River Rd. from Carrie Gaulbert Cox Park, which is along the Ohio River, but always seems more […]

Review: Thurman Hutchins Park

Always on the lookout for new and different parks in Louisville, we were happy to stumble upon Thurman Hutchins Park on River Road, just east of Zorn Avenue. The park is right across the road from Carrie Gaulbert Cox Park (and the boat launch area) but it has a completely different feel. Our first impression was of beautiful, wide open […]
