Organization: 21st Century Parks
Type: Bike Path
Address: The Parklands at Floyds Fork, Louisville, KY
A $10,000 grant helped 21st Century Parks to build a stacked mountain-bike loop in the Floyds Fork Greenway, a multi-million-dollar, 4,000-acre system of four parks currently under development in Louisville, Kentucky. The singletrack is part of an extensive network of biking, hiking, and equestrian trails in the greenway, which directly accesses surrounding neighborhoods and links to the Louisville Loop-a non-motorized route that circumnavigates the city. 21st Century Parks partnered with representatives from the Kentucky Mountain Bike Association to insure the 50 miles of dirt trails in the greenway were professionally built and provide exciting opportunities for riders of all abilities. Funding for the Floyds Fork Greenway project was a mix of federal transportation and local government grants, as well as generous contributions from individuals, foundations, and corporations in Louisville.
