The more rugged of the Louisville parks, Iroquois Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, has plenty of forested hillsides and scenic vistas for those willing to walk the extra mile.

I grew up in this area and remember when the tornado went through taking out several of the oldest, largest trees. The park improvements since my last visit make the park even more beautiful.

If I'm going to Iroquois Park for an event, would it be better to stay in a hotel by the airport or downtown? Any recommendations?

personally i like the air port hotels better, they are closer to the park, and are newer, and have moor space for parking. downtown traffic can be hectic, with one way streets.
