Photo Set: We can still go outside! Get your steps and burn on

Louisville residents are getting out to walk, jog and cycle while practicing social distancing, which has been made easier in Cherokee Park because vehicles are now banned from the Scenic Loop, making it safer for you to spread out. 

And with the gyms now closed, many are even strength training in the parks.

Take a look. •
