It is right next to the playground which has definitely seen better days. There was only one baby swing that was duct taped together. There were four […]

Review of Joe Creason Park By Jeanette

Across the street from the Louisville zoo is Joe Creason Park. This was my first time exploring the park and I look forward to returning.

Review of Charlie Vettiner Park: By Jeanette

Charlie Vettiner Park is a nice park, but my toddler is too young to enjoy its amenities. It has a very cool playground, but geared towards older kids. The swings are a small distance away and have both baby and bigger swings. The bathrooms are near the playground. Other things unique to the park include an exercise path, disc golf, […]
