Elliott Park

DESIGNED IN 1906, THIS FOUR-ACRE NEIGHBORHOOD PARK FEATURES RECREATIONAL FACILITIES AND PLAY AREAS.

The park is described as an oasis of green sandwiched between residential properties on the east, industrial to the north and west, and retail on the south. Once called Eclipse Park, what is now Elliott Park hosted Major League Baseball home games for Louisville’s team, The Colonels, until 1892 when the park was destroyed by a fire. Throughout the development of Elliott Park the baseball field remained a central fixture.
