The Strand opens to connect 4 parks through the Louisville Loop

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The northern end of The Strand opened Friday morning.

The two-mile stretch now connects Beckley Creek, Pope Lick, Turkey Run and Broad Run Parks via the Louisville Loop Trail and Floyds Fork.

In addition to 20 miles of water trail, Parklands visitors will now have access to 19 miles of continuous, multi-recreational trail for walking, running, biking and exploring.

There are no roadways to access The Strand, so visitors arriving by car will need to park in Pope Lick Park in the north or Turkey Run Park in the south before exploring this new area.
