Here’s a list of the biggest spots to get outdoors

In the mood to get outdoors? Louisville is home to more than 120 parks and recreation spaces that offer chances to play ball, bicycle, walk or jog, or just soak in some sunshine.

The city’s park system also boasts more than a dozen parks – including Cherokee, Iroquois and Shawnee – designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed New York’s Central Park.

These parks “provide a respite to the stresses of modern city life,” according to the Olmsted Parks Conservancy, which works with the city to revitalize them.

Another of the said jewels is the 85-acre Waterfront Park, which opened in 1999 on the downtown riverfront and offers concerts, playgrounds, swings and walking paths as well as access to the Big Four Bridge, an old railroad span that has been converted to allow pedestrians to cross the Ohio River to Jeffersonville, Indiana, where they can enjoy shops and dining.
