North Beckley Creek Park Opening Day Celebration
Is there anything more relaxing than a stroll through the park? Even in winter, the calm of the quiet trails and beautiful scenery can easily erase a week’s worth of stress. It’s the perfect spot, allowing the family to enjoy the picnic areas and jungle gyms (for the little ones!) in the warmer months, and giving the person in need of some alone time the chance to reflect and explore on their own. Though the colder months of the year make it slightly tricky to relish every aspect of the park, it’s still an exciting day when you get a new one to break in!
And that’s exactly what you’re getting this Saturday! The Parklands will be officially opening the North Beckley Creek Park on November 10th, just off Shelbyville Road. Be there at 10am for the ribbon cutting ceremony on the first part of the Louisville Loop, estimated to be a 100-mile network of trails that will eventually encircle the city, connecting parks, neighborhoods, and popular destinations while providing alternate transportation and a fun, recreational adventure.
This celebration offers a huge range of activities to herald in the new park. Right after the ribbon ceremony, go on a family bike ride and be the first to experience the newly opened 2 mile stretch on the Coppiced Woods trail. It cuts through the forest next to William F. Miles Lakes, giving you a lovely, scenic route to start off the morning with. And if you have a fishing license, you can also enjoy a day of fishing on the William F. Miles Lakes, too. There will also be fly fishing and fly casting demonstrations by Derby City Fly Fishers, and you can venture onto several hikes led by Michael Gaige and The Parklands staff. Best of all, there will be paddling demonstrations on Floyds Fork for all the kayak and canoe fans out there.
Please note that you should bring your own equipment (bikes, kayaks, helmets and boots, etc) to this event, which is free. There will be light refreshments and food provided by partners of The Parklands, and trolley tours to show off Beckley Creek Park. Come out and celebrate the opening of a brand new park in Louisville! Beckley Creek Park will no doubt become a popular spot for anyone and everyone who loves the outdoors.
