Long Run Park

The site for tomorrow's picnic will be Long Run Park in Louisville, KY. Maintained by the City of Louisville, Long Run is one of 122 parks covering more than 12.000 acres in the city. Long Run is 416 acres and offers an 18 hole golf course, 28 acre lake, horse back riding trails, tennis courts, playground, picnic shelters and grills.

My husband and I began visiting Long Run years ago when we lived in the city and wanted to take our children out to the country to play. In the far east end of Louisville, Long Run has a rural feel with its expansive rolling fields. Even after moving out into the country ourselves, my husband and I still have lunch at the park for a get away from the office occasionally.

Picnic tables are located by the lake and with the shade of plenty of trees it will be a lovely spot for a picnic.

Today I am joining Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer.

    Looks like a lovely place for a picnic! Such a beautiful setting.
    In your profile it says you have an antique shop?
    It's nice to meet you.
