Dedicated to man's relationship with the horse, the Kentucky Horse Park is unlike any other park in the world -- a showcase of museums, galleries, theaters, and working farm exhibits. Nearly 50 breeds of horses graze upon its 1,200 acres of lush pastures. A campground offers 260 spacious sites with grocery store/gift shop, two bathhouses, tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts and a swimming pool.
This 1,200 acre state park is dedicated to all breeds of horse. A variety of facilities can be rented for events. The Club Lounge, carpeted and tastefully decorated, includes a built in bar and accommodates 100 seated guests. Steeplechase Barn accommodates 450 people and is excellent for barbecues and casual parties. The Indoor Arena can seat 1,200 on permanent seating with an additional 1,800 on portable bleachers. Group tour leaders: ask about the Kentucky Sundown program.
