Durant isnt the most elaborate park in the county, but it certainly is an asset to its community which is mostly a suburban concrete parking lot and strip mall wasteland. Its a great place to walk a dog or get some peace and quiet in the bustling St. Matthews neighborhood. The park runs along a branch of Beargrass Creek which adds a nice aesthetic and natural feature, however, the creek is polluted and often becomes contaminated by sewer overflows during major or rapid rain events, so dont plan to go swimming or fishing in it, and be cautious of letting your pup near it!
This place is a groovy oasis right in the middle of the congested city of St Matthews. Its a piece of green carved out in ways both natural and contemporary. Pathways follow the winding Beargrass Creek one moment and than rise above swampy wetlands via steel grating that angles around like something out of an abstract art painting. Its a small park, but it has all sorts of places to hideaway. Come here to walk, jog, meditate, relax or picnic. Do not come here to bike, hike or look for a playground.
Good place to sit and relax, but no hiking, biking or even skateboarding. Great place to get away from people, but not my go-to park.
Nice suburban park with paved walkway. Dogs kept on leash.
Small park with a small creek. Good for afternoon walk.
Its a nice park where you can walk, but is very small
