Since the late 1930s, people in the Louisville area have been enjoying the 2600 acres that make up one of the most popular park areas in the commonwealth. Otter Creek Park was endowed to the City of Louisville in 1947 by the Federal Government for the city's contributions during World War II. Over the years there have been many additions and improvements made to Otter Creek. Now, in the next chapter, Otter Creek Park will become the Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will now manage and operate the park, and it will feature something for everyone. The first area of its kind, Otter Creek will be open to hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders, nature and wildlife watchers, hunters & anglers. No matter how you like to enjoy the outdoors, you will be able to find it at Otter Creek. There will also be a shooting range, and a campground.
