Statement from Louisville Parks and Recreation - Cherokee, Iroquois park loop roads decision timeline
Louisville Parks and Recreation is working closely with partners, including the Olmsted Parks Conservancy, the Louisville Metro Council, Mayor Fischer and the city’s leadership team, to come to a decision on the future usage of the park loop roads in Iroquois and Cherokee parks. Additionally, the group is carefully considering the passionate public response received from those who want the roads fully reopened and those who want them to remain closed. The Olmsted Parks Conservancy is gathering data regarding park usage in Cherokee and Iroquois parks pre and post COVID-19 which will take a couple of weeks. A decision on the future usage of the loops is expected to come by the end of the month.
