Pope Lick Park

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get lost in the beauty of nature. Nothing is more enchanting than a stroll along the trails of Trestle Point and the Big Beech Woods. And nothing beats paddling along the banks of Floyds Fork and experiencing the thrill of the rushing water. Add to that numerous soccer fields where kids enjoy hours of activity and friendly competition and you have the makings of a perfect outdoor getaway. NOW OPEN!
