About The Parklands of Floyds Fork

The Parklands of Floyds Fork is a nearly 4,000-acre donor-supported public park system under development within the Floyds Fork watershed in eastern and southeastern Louisville. One of the largest and most ambitious metropolitan park projects in the nation, The Parklands is a dream realized by 21st Century Parks, a nonprofit organization established to create and preserve new unexcelled parks that serve as city-shaping infrastructure.

With the opening of Turkey Run Park, The Parklands will be approximately 60% open, currently operating and programming the first three of four parks in Eastern Jefferson County. The Strand, a 5-6 mile stretch of the Louisville Loop, and Broad Run Park are currently under construction and scheduled to open to the public in the spring of 2016. 21st Century Parks is responsible for fundraising, land acquisition, construction, and long-term operations of the new park system. Community members may contribute to the annual fund by becoming a Parklands Member. Learn more at www.theparklands.org/Member.
