Play Hookie at The Parklands!

Play Hookie at The Parklands!

As Park Director, I’m declaring Friday, October 22, an un-officially approved “Hookie” Day for Louisville. Tomorrow may be one of the last, best fall days of the year and will be the perfect time to get out and explore Turkey Run Park. I expect downtown Louisville to be a vacant ghost town tomorrow afternoon when the sun comes out and the temps hit the low 80s. 

If you take advantage of this beautiful fall day, here are a couple of quick recommendations:

Again, it is an un-official hookie day at The Parklands. Get outside and enjoy this beautiful park on a beautiful fall day. You’ll regret it when winter comes along if you miss this shot.
