    John Breckinridge Castleman, an 1868 UofL law graduate, is considered the father of Louisville’s park system. As the city’s first parks commissioner, Castleman is credited with bringing Frederick Law Olmsted to Louisville in 1890 to work on the city’s parks design. Castleman also donated land for Cherokee Park, where his statue now stands in tribute.
