Seneca Park was the last park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted's firm in Louisville, Kentucky, United States.[1] The park system in Louisville was the last of five designed by the Olmsted firm.[2] The park resides in the Louisville neighborhood of Seneca Gardens, Kentucky.[3] The park has been updated over the years to include restrooms and playground equipment that supplements several trails for people or horses. The park has several sport facilities available and also has an 18-hole professional golf course.[4]

According to The Trust for Public Land, Seneca Park has 500,000 visitors annually, making it tied for the 69th most popular municipal park in the United States.[5]

A major feature is its 1.2-mile (1.9 km) track with tennis courts and several ball fields in the center. There is also a mountain bike trail.
