Five minutes from central Downtown, walking distance from world-class parks and golf courses, and nestled between the City’s best restaurants and shopping, is the beloved Highlands neighborhood. The Highlands is the home for the active “Louisvillian” who enjoys culture, arts, and true community living. The Highlands is a neighborhood with a pulse, and the tree-lined Cherokee Road is the Highlands’ heart. The Highlands is a neighborhood with daily, weekly, and annual traditions. Neighbors enjoy their morning cups of coffee on their front porches, walks with their dogs in the park, and rely on their political discussions at the corner coffee shop. Weekly events include the Saturday Farmers Market, and the Summer Concert series at Willow Park. Every year, for one weekend the Highlands is the place to be for the annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair which draws artists from all over the Country.
The Highlands is home to several beautiful Parks including Tyler Park, Douglas Park, Willow Park, and Seneca Park, but the heart of the Highlands is Cherokee Park. Cherokee Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, and encompasses 409 acres of beautiful land which includes a 2.4 mile loop for dog walking, running, or biking. Cherokee Park also offers a golf course, playgrounds, recreation areas, mountain bike trails, and some of the best sledding in town!
