Fred's Facts

With its stylized system of roads and concourses, music court, lily pond, and carefully arranged border plantings, Shawnee was the most formal of Frederick Law Olmsted’s large, pastoral parks.

This small neighborhood park was originally known as Third Street Triangle, then Third Street Playground and beginning in 1916, the park was called Triangle Park.

In 1985 the name was changed to Stansbury Park when the city of Louisville’s Board of Alderman renamed the park to honor the memory of deceased former Louisville Mayor William B. Stansbury. Its formal design in 1900 allowed for two playgrounds and tranquil landscaped areas. Because over the years, the park has lost most of its original design, a Master Plan has been developed to restore the park.
