A 570 acre recreation park on the outskirts of Louisville named after former Jefferson County Judge Executive Erbon Powers 'Tom' Sawyer. The park was once a farm worked by Central State Hospital and was dedicated in 1971 by Governor Louie B. Nunn. E.P. 'Tom' Sawyer has the finest indoor and outdoor recreation facilities in Kentucky. While visiting the park, stop by the Activities Building for the indoor facilities which house a game area including pool tables, ping pong table, foosball tables and a gymnasium with courts for badminton, pickleball and basketball and seats up to 600.
