Most People Don’t Know About This Magical Sunflower Field Hiding In Louisville
The Parklands of Floyds Fork is a relatively new parks system that opened to the public in 2010. Over less than a decade, Louisville nonprofit group 21st Century Parks has created a beautiful place to play, exercise, and relax, surrounded by colorful meadows and wide open fields. Although some of Louisville’s best parks are located in the Parklands, many people in the city might not have explored the lovely grounds yet, as all of the parks are found on the easternmost border of Louisville about 20-30 minutes from downtown. Today we’ll be featuring the vibrant sunflower meadows that can be found across all of the Parklands.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
If you haven’t been to the Parklands of Floyds Fork yet I encourage you to go explore these beautiful grounds, even if it is a bit of a drive for you to reach them. It won’t be long until frosty weather arrives, so we Louisvillians should enjoy the outdoors as long as we can!
