On January 1, 2011, The Parklands of Floyds Fork assumed responsibility of William F. Miles Lakes through an innovative agreement with Metro Louisville. The Parklands of Floyds Fork, a dream realized by the nonprofit 21st Century Parks, will provide all maintenance, operations and programming for William F. Miles Lakes, and will integrate the park and its resources into The Parklands’ overall recreation, education and conservation planning.

Canoeing and Paddling:
North Beckley Paddling Access, in Beckley Creek Park near William F. Miles Lakes, is open for paddling. Water trail maps and takeout information is posted on the kiosk near the paddling access. Construction is currently underway on the new Creekside Paddling Access behind Gheens Foundation Lodge.
To help provide a high quality paddling experience during construction, we are opening a fresh section of Floyds Fork starting from the existing Fisherville Canoe Launch and running 3.5 miles downstream to the new, temporary Cane Run Canoe Launch (6500 Echo Trail Road). For your safety, we recommend you detour downstream to this new section to avoid construction activities in the Beckley Park area.
