Every now and then I get a little bit restless and I dream of something …Iroquois Park
Free Walking Tour – Iroquois Park | Change Abounds
Join us in Iroquois Park (around the Amphitheater area) for a FREE walking tour, “Change Abounds: The Park Responds” led by Certified Tour Guide and Park Steward Denise Davis.
Constructed in the 19th century, Iroquois Park experienced many changes as Louisville and its people entered and progressed through the 20th century. It is here that the incident which unfortunately led to our parks being officially segregated for over thirty years took place. It’s also here that, decades later, the first all-accessible playground was built in our city. Come hear about and see the physical and social changes present in this beautiful park’s history.
Dress for warm weather, wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle and meet 5-10 minutes prior to tour start. Feel free to bring a walking stick. Leashed dogs and children accompanied by an adult are welcome!
