According to its web site, Turkey Run Park is scheduled to open in a few weeks. I can tell you from a first-hand look, a likely-illegal bike ride from Broad Run Road to Bardstown Road through the park, that it is pretty spectacular. Sure, the signs aren’t finished, but the big attraction was there before the roads were put in. I rode past a No Trespassing sign off Broad Run Road on a pristine stretch of asphalt. Designed for biking and hiking, I encountered a monstrous hill that I couldn’t summit without getting off the bike and walking. The reward was…

I spent a few hours there Friday and Saturday, long enough for a few PBRs and a rocking’ set from St. Paul and the Broken Bones, now a favorite band. LouisvilleKY.com’s photographer Bill Brymer was turned loose with an assignment that consisted of…
