Louisville, Ky. (November 21, 2019) —The Silo Center Bike Park in Turkey Run Park is closed for the season. Closing the bike park during the coldest portion of the year helps protect trails and features from costly and irreparable damage that can occur during the freeze/thaw cycle. The bike park will re-open in 2020 when temperatures warm. For more information on the bike park, including announcements on a re-opening date, visit www.theparklands.org/bikepark.
Natural surface trails throughout the rest of The Parklands remain open during all four seasons, including 15 miles of shared-use, natural surface trails and 19 miles of the paved Louisville Loop. Hikers, runners and riders are encouraged to practice trail etiquette no matter the weather. Please remember to share the trail, and if there is mud on your heels or wheels, turn around to prevent permanent trail damage.
The Silo Center Bike Park and trails throughout The Parklands of Floyds Fork were made possible thanks to generous donors. Help maintain the trails you love by becoming a Parklands Member. Join or renew today at www.theparklands.org/Member.
About The Parklands of Floyds Fork
The Parklands of Floyds Fork is a nearly 4,000-acre donor-supported public park system within the Floyds Fork watershed in eastern and southeastern Louisville, Kentucky. The $125 million project was funded through more than $70 million in private donations, combined with almost $50 million from federal, state and local government sources. Ongoing operations and maintenance are funded solely through private donations and an endowment fund. Community members may contribute to the annual fund by becoming a Parklands Member.

Being a donor-supported public park means we rely on donations, not tax dollars, for annual operations each year. Because of your generosity, we are able to maintain, program, and further develop this extraordinary public space without charging an entry fee. Together we work to enhance quality of life and help our community and economy grow in ways that are healthy, sustainable, and enjoyable for people of all ages.
