Old Louisville in Autumn

St. James Court and Central Park

St. James Court and Belgravia Courts are the crown jewels of Old Louisville.  Built on the site of the Southern Exposition of 1883-1887, the courts, with their shady greens, are among the most beautiful areas of the city. (more)

Adjacent to St. James Court, Central Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, and on the site of the old DuPont estate, continues to be a focal point of summer festivals and outdoor theater.
