Members Make It Happen

Beautiful parks and trails enhance the quality of life in our community, making it more healthy, sustainable, and enjoyable. Reflecting Louisville's reputation as a great place to live, The Parklands is a powerful vehicle for attracting and retaining individuals, families, and employers, contributing to a vibrant future for our community and our children.

Together, we work to maintain this beautiful community asset.

We rely on Membership donations, not tax dollars, for the annual operations of this donor-supported public park. Your contribution helps to provide the community with clean, safe, fun, beautiful and free access to nearly 4,000 acres of parkland preserved and open 365 days a year.

  • Continue the daily maintenance to fulfill our mission of creating clean, safe, fun and beautiful parks every day.

Membership comes with great perks, too.
