Tour Description: Join Certified Tour Guide Denise Davis for the second in a series of three brand-new educational walking tours in Iroquois Park! Constructed in the 19th century, Iroquois Park experienced many changes as Louisville and its people entered and progressed through the 20th century. It is here that the incident which unfortunately led to our parks being officially segregated for over thirty years took place. It’s also here that, decades later, the first all-accessible playground was built in our city. Come hear about and see the physical and social changes present in this beautiful park’s history.

Tour Notes: Dress for warm weather, wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a water bottle and meet 5-10 minutes prior to tour start. Feel free to bring a walking stick. Leashed dogs and children accompanied by an adult are welcome.
