Parks to take a Spring Walk In
Louisville is well known for it's wonderful parks. There are center city parks designed by Olmsted and the newer Waterfront Park and then there are many little gems in neighborhoods all over the city. In fact there are over 14,000 acres of parks and over 100 miles of bike and hiking paths!
Two of those gems are located just two blocks from us. One is Brown Park and the other is Draut Nature Preserve. They both have meandering creeks and wild flowers and many birds. This area is a migratory path for many birds especially mallard ducks and Canadian geese so many of them nest here this time of the year. It's not unusual to see baby ducks and we even put a sign on the drive to worn guests of some in our back garden.
They are beautiful in the mornings and guests often take a walk and then come back for breakfast.
