Special Places - The Strand

Within The Parklands of Floyds Fork, many treasures of the landscape and our natural history lie hidden. Naturalists have chosen over 100 “special places” within the park boundaries that we don’t want you to miss. Next time you’re exploring The Parklands, be sure to stop by and take a look at the nuanced landscape. Within it lies a world waiting to be discovered that will not only introduce or expand your knowledge and appreciate for local natural history, but leave you in awe of the remarkable resources including flora, fauna, history and culture that we have in our area.

Walnut Grove - In the spring of 2016, when The Strand is open to the public, you might notice the perfect rows of trees visible from the Louisville Loop.  Does this grove look natural to you? That’s right; the trees did not naturally grow in those rows. A small grove of trees was planted as an investment strategy by the property’s previous owners. A neat site in an otherwise unruly forest!
