It does Here's a website:LouisvilleKy.gov - Otter Creek - Otter Creek Park


I don't understand for the life of me why it is a city park and not state.

Thanks for posting the photos. Otter Creek is a fine place to spend some time and relax.
The creek is a good place to cool off during the summer heat waves. I know of a larger pool which is deep enough for swimming.
Anyone going to the old conference center can get a terrific view of the Ohio River and surrounding area.
At the park headquarters is a nature center with very detailed explanations of the geology of the park as well as animals that inhabit the area.
The good part is that Otter Creek is less than an hour's drive from Louisville. Take Dixie Highway to Muldraugh, turn right at the BP station (Route 1648, I think). The park entrance is about 5 miles further.

I have been going to this creek since I was "knee high to a grasshopper". My kids have been going all their lives too.

No, don't take Dixie the whole way. Go Cane run to Greenbelt until it turns onto Dixie. There's ALOT less lights that way. From my house it takes me about 35 minutes to get there.
