Go to the Drop-In Playgroup August 30
It’s good for kids to meet new people and try new things, but it’s also good for parents. Go to the Drop-In Playgroup on August 30, and maybe you and your child can share some fun new experiences together while you work on arts-based activities and meet other parents and their kids.
Drop in Around Iroquois
Go to the Community Center at 4801 Southside Drive from 10 am to 12 noon to play and meet new people. Miss Elena from Nurturing Pathways will lead the group in several artistic activities that help both parents and kids get creative. The program is designed for kids aged 5 and up and their parents.
It’s a drop-in group, and that means you can show up when you like and admission is free. The Community Center on Southside is all about bringing the community together, and you’ll learn more about the communities nearby while you’re here. After you leave the playgroup, stop to take a look at Iroquois Park and the pretty neighborhood right next door: Iroquois.
Soak up the Shade in Iroquois
Iroquois Park is a great place to go looking for fun new experiences. The amphitheater here hosts events regularly, but even when nothing is scheduled there's always something amazing to discover at the park. It's designed to take advantage of the natural scenic views that allow you to look out over the city. You can also find places to practice all sorts of sports here, including archery, horseshoes, disc golf, regular golf, tennis and hiking. They're a playground and sprayground that kids always love.
The neighborhood known as Iroquois is right next to the park, and has some pretty amazing views of its own. Iroquois is made up of mostly homes, a sprawling parkside neighborhood filled with cozy bungalows, Cape Cod-style designs and ranch houses. It's the kind of neighborhood with long front walkways and lots of shady trees that create that perfect suburban look. When you're surrounded by tall trees and pretty houses, it's easy to forget that Iroquois has such great access to all sorts of other attractions nearby. Because it's located near the center of the city, being in Iroquois keeps you close to everything you might want to do.
You’ve been warned: you might want to stay in this area of Louisville for a long, long time after you come here with the kids.
