History of Cherokee Park

When Frederick Law Olmsted designed Louisville’s park system, he started with three main parks: Cherokee, Iroquois and Shawnee. Designed in 1891, Cherokee Park is the East Louisville cornerstone of the park system and provides a pastoral setting amid rolling hills, open meadows and woodlands of the Beargrass Creek valley.
