Beckley Creek Park

1411 Beckley Creek Parkway, Louisville, Kentucky 40205

Each of our parks has its own personality, and Beckley Creek is our traditional urban park — the northern stretch of The Parklands, its Garden Gateway entrance abutting Shelbyville Road near the I-265/I-64 juncture. Beckley Creek Park serves the surrounding suburbs with its picnic areas and fishing lakes, farmers markets and community gardens, paved or natural-surface trails that wind along the creek, and business meetings and wedding receptions at the Gheens Foundation Lodge.
