Have a Picnic on Top of the City This December

So you can't really eat in restaurants anymore. And it's not all that safe to be indoors anymore. But there are things you can do to have fun this December and still stay safe when it comes to your health. Have an afternoon out and have a picnic in one of Louisville's most scenic spots, Iroquois Park. Because even if you can't go to a restaurant, you can still go on a picnic.

On Top of the City

If you walk up to the top of Iroquois Park, you can get an amazing view of the entire city. On clear days you can see all the way to the river. It's a great view up there. You can’t drive all the way to the top but you can park and hike up the hill. The climb is worth it and the trail is very easy even for novice hikers.

Iroquois Park View of Louisville

The park is designated as a scenic points area. It’s open from 6 am to 11 pm and has hundreds of acres of beautiful nature and scenic views to enjoy. It's a great spot for a picnic and it's safe to be outside and away from crowds. You won't find a big crowd at the park in December. But you will find that this is a great way to get out of the house and have a nice time. Iroquois Park is at 5216 New Cut Road, close to the Beechmont neighborhood, a historic community that's full of beautiful real estate.

Go All Around Beechmont

Beechmont is near the park and near Churchill Downs, Louisville’s most famous attraction. This neighborhood was built in the late 1800s and named for the many pretty beech trees that grow naturally in the area. It was built as a summer neighborhood for wealthy Louisvillians and you can still see it in the real estate that stands here today. The homes in Beechmont have a lot of custom features and little details that set this neighborhood apart.

Many homes here have hardwood floors, custom woodwork and lots of fine details that truly surround you in luxury. These pretty bungalow-style homes are full of history and full of stories to tell. Go start writing your own story in Beechmont this December. The next chapter of your life may take place right here.
