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.

Our two reasons for visiting in November - the Urban Bourbon Trail and the Jack O'Lantern Spectacular - which was beyond impressive - so many designs with amazing detail. You must visit!

Iroquois Park is an excellent location to train for biking or running. There are several great hills that build endurance. Running around the bottom is a good 3 mile workout, adding a trip to the top and back results in a great 7 mile run.

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.
