Went to the Christmas light show and it was so amazing. This is a small city but they blew out the Louisville mega caverns and a couple other drive through light shows I have been to on other states. And it was all for donations. No charge up front and no major lines to wait for. Just incredible. Take the... More

Freeman Lake has always been a wonderful place to visit. It is very well maintained and as pretty as can be. Excellent for fishing and picnics!

I played disc golf here on 2/17 after having not played here for a while. Come to find out they've ruined a chunk of the course by putting in a stupid, fence-offed, dog park which makes 2 holes unplayable. They've could picked plenty of other places to put the stupid thing, but no, they have to put it right smack... More

I have lived in Elizabethtown and the surrounding area for basically all my life, except for a few years in college. I have visited this part literally hundreds of times. I'm not sure how 'hard' it is actually marketed for tourism. It is a nice park to visit, but not really a 'destination,' to be honest. There are many ducks,... More

One of my favorite places is the Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown, KY. With every visit I see something new and inviting. The layout and design is far better than you will find in most small parks. Trails are many. Water is clean. The caretakers should be commended for their hard work.

Nice place for family or a good first date. Pavilions and paddle boats as well as fishing. Walking trails and nature park. Good for jogging and letting the little ones bike or run around.

Walking and bike trail around the lake is awesome. Also great place to feed the ducks and catch a summer concert. Lots of parking and plenty of areas for activities. Christmas in the park is nice for kids.

This park is a great place for many things. Picnics, tennis, frisbee, hiking, paddle-boating, geocaching, playing Poke'mon GO, or just hanging out! There is plenty of parking, nice roads and trails to transit, covered areas to gather and a great connection to our 16th President. There is even a totem pole here! Walk around, see what you see, check out... More
