LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.19 39 "My family and I still marvel about our parks some 20 years after moving here. 'Nobody loves a sunny day like Louisville,' we say to each oth- er. I could wax poetic about Brown Park with the ducks and the woodsy walking trail and the kitschy and wonderful Christmas lights. I could talk about Seneca, or Cherokee and Big Rock and Dog Hill. Exercise boot camps, kickball, pic- nics in the meadows. We take our students to Iroquois Park every year to celebrate the be- ginning of summer, and the amphitheater has hosted some of my favorite shows. I've been to almost all of the parks for family photos at one point or another. I also really love Tyler Park — like a setting from a Neil Gaiman story. It al- ways struck me as a secret spot, a tucked-away, shady little gem that's now getting a makeover. For big events — to feel like you are part of something bigger than yourself — nothing beats Waterfront Park. Since we moved out to Simp- sonville, I love Beckley Creek and the Parklands. We ride our bikes through the meadows, walk along the creek. And, of course, the play and spray grounds are a must for our girls." — Jennifer Wade-Hesse, teacher at Olmsted Academy South Photo of Jefferson Memorial Forest by Joon Kim GEN
