The fence relocation project was completed in November. As you probably noticed if you've been lately, the Louisville Water Company has also completed the demolition of the old River Road Country Club clubhouse. We are told they will be doing some landscaping this spring.

Champions Park is a new park along the River Road Recreation Corridor that includes the former Louisville Soccer Park, the Frankfort Avenue Landfill and the former River Road Country Club site. The Champions Dog Run is the first facility in this new park and spreads out over 2.6 acres of the former golf course. There are separate All Dog and Small Dog sides, drinking water available, and plenty of space to run around and exercise.

From I-71 = Take EXIT 2 and turn north onto ZORN AVENUE. The entrance to the parking area for the dog run will be located on your immediate left. If you get to River Road you've gone too far.

If you are a GPS user and need an address try using 2930 River Road, just be aware that the entrance to the property is off of Zorn Avenue and not River River.

Please go to for a complete list of the Champions Dog Run rules.

The Champions Advisory Committee (CAC) is a subcommittee of the Louisville Dog Run Association Board of Directors. The CAC is made up of people who regularly visit the dog run who are willing to help oversee the day-to-day operations of the Champions Dog Run. The CAC also oversees rule enforcement, maintenance, and member relations. For more information about the Champions Advisory Committee please go to or email us at
