The park is an amazing place to bike, and it is right next to a truly amazing Louisville community: Pleasure Ridge Park.
Bike Around PRP
Pleasure Ridge Park is currently the second-largest suburb in Louisville, and may soon become the largest. More than 25,000 people live in this community that's full of schools, restaurants, parks, shopping and everything else you need in a community.
Children in PRP play at Iroquois and Waverly Parks. They attend Pleasure Ridge Park high school, and go shopping for new clothes along Dixie Highway where you can find all the best stops. They go out to dinner at restaurants offering cuisine from all over the world, and then go all the way to the river to look at Indiana. Go down to the end of Greenwood Road, and you'll see the Ohio River gently lapping past.
There are sidewalks and shade trees all over the PRP community, which is filled with many different neighborhoods and subdivisions. You'll find beautiful homes of all sizes in neighborhoods like Rockford Estates, Windsor Forest, Hunters Trace, Timothy Hills and St. Andrews Park.
In fact, you'll find lots of reasons to fall in love with PRP if you start biking around this area. You've got a week to ride around this large Louisville community and discover more about what it has to offer.
