Hosted by the Community Foundation of Louisville, Give for Good Louisville is an unprecedented day of unity in the name of philanthropy. Communities from across Kentucky and Southern Indiana join forces to give vital support to 550+ participating organizations creating positive change for thousands of individuals in need.
When you donate to The Parklands of Floyds Fork through the Give for Good Louisville website on September 17, you help us win additional match and prize money, which will help us continue delivering a FREE, world-class experience for millions of visits each year!
The Parklands of Floyds Fork, named Louisville’s Top Tourist Attraction in 2020 by Louisville Business First, experiences more than 3 million visits each year. Park neighbors, city-dwellers, and adventure-seekers from across the region visit The Parklands for respite, relaxation and exploration. With over 3.8 million visits in 2020, this visitor-supported public park is safe, clean, fun and beautiful for the entire community, thanks to supporters like YOU.
Your donations make it all possible:
- 3,825,891 park visits in 2020
- 78,255 trees planted since opening
- 17,295 Virtual Classroom participants
- 60 acres treated for invasive species in 2020 so native plant species can thrive
- 80 miles of trails for hiking, biking and paddling, including:
- 22 miles of water trail with 7 paddling access points
- 19 connected miles of the paved, fully-accessible Louisville Loop
- 34 public restrooms maintained to a high standard
- Nearly 4,000 acres permanently preserved
- 4 parks open 365 days a year, free to the public
The Parklands does not receive tax-dollar support for annual operations and, therefore, we rely on your generosity to maintain, program, and further develop this extraordinary public space.
