Summer is here! Literally. It started today! Children love summer; school is out, three months with no homework, unlimited opportunities for fun. Parents, however, are aware that the opportunities for fun can be quite limited. So it is alway refreshing to hear about new events, especially free ones.
Iriquois Park is a wealth of outdoor fun for all ages. Iriquois Park is a 739 acre park situated on the south side of Louisville. Entering the park you immediately forget you are in the city as you step into forested hikes and canopy roads. The park features hilltop scenic views of the city and surrounds. Activities in the park include hiking, biking, running, golf, disc golf, basketball courts, fishing, grill/picnis areas, horse riding trails and much more.
The park includes the state-of-the-art outdoor Iroquois Amphitheater which seats 2,348 people. The facility was fully renovated in 2003 leaving the theater updated with modern theater technology yet keeping many of its historic features.
This Saturday they host Louisville Philharmonia where Daniel Spurlock will conduct a full orchestra playing pop music including movies, musicals, and marches. Doors open at 6:30pm shows stars at 7:30pm. Donations welcome.
Throughtout the Summer The Amphitheater also hosts free movie nights for families. Movies include "School of Rock", "Sing", "The Jungle Book" and many more. Doors open at 7:30pm, the show starts at 8:30pm.
