Metro Parks operates through a combination of ordinances approved by the Louisville Metro Council, and policies adopted by the Director of Metro Parks.
For current ordinances related to the use of local parks, please visit Chapter 42 of the Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances.
Many ordinances that affect the use of parks – such as the requirement that pet owners use leashes and clean up animal waste – are found in other sections of the Code of Ordinances. To access the entire Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances, click here.
