Visitors can now enjoy a new garden at The Parklands of Floyds Fork in east Louisville.

The Moss Gibbs Woodland Garden was dedicated at a ceremony Friday morning.

More than 47,000 plants fill the 15-acre area. It features wild flowers, dynamic terrain and unique stone work.

“We get in these busy lives and we forget to stop, exercise, but even just be at peace at times and let our minds sort of wonder and be excited about the things we see around us,” Tom Smarr, Director of Horticulture and Natural Resources, said.

The work on the Woodland Garden cost a little more than $2 million and took about two years to complete.

The Parklands of Floyds Fork is accessible from I-64, just past I-265 near the Jefferson/Shelby County line.
