Thurman-Hutchins Park
ThurmanHutchinsParksits across the road from the Ohio River and Carrie Gaulbert Cox Park Park Louisville Kentucky . While it lacks the river vista of its sister park, it has its own beauty in its well maintained lawns, walking trails and wetlands. First and foremost, this is a walker’s park. Even in colder weather, you will see quite a few walkers navigating the parks walking trails...

The Park has a boat ramp and a long shoreline with a couple of stands of mature trees that make it a great place for a summer picnic...
