Where you’ll be

Louisville, Kentucky, United States

Wilder Park is a sleepy neighborhood - you will find a mix of families that have lived here for generations, some college students going to the University of Louisville, and young professionals with their first time home purchase. It is important to note that Wilder Park is an urban neighborhood, and and such, there may be some aspects to the neighborhood that guests are not familiar with. There is more density when comparing to suburban neighborhoods. You will find on-street parking and smaller lots closer to neighbors is common in these type of city dwellings. Airplanes, trains and trucks are common noises. Additionally, you may see things that are not common in suburban or rural areas. There is the possibility for the occasional "pan-handler". Please be prepared to handle those situations accordingly.

The neighborhood is tucked away next to a retail strip center - you will find a Kroger grocery store, Planet Fitness Gym, as well as restaurants, liquor store, coffee shop and a few other spots. The property is located on the east side of Churchill Downs and just south of the University of Louisville, and will be ideal for anyone looking to visit the track or on a college visit throughout the year. If you are a business traveler looking for a convenient stop next to the airport, you will find this space to be about a 5 minute drive from the drop off/pick-up terminals. This is also a great location for anyone visiting the Kentucky Fair and Expo Center, as you could very well walk to that space from here. Lastly, if you are looking for a convenient space that will allow you to visit the trendy/foodie neighborhoods of NuLu, Germantown and the Highlands - you should find that it will be about a 10 - 15 minute Uber ride depending on whereabouts in those neighborhoods you would like to go.

I am a small business owner here in Louisville - I have an equipment financing company and a catering company that i get to run with my brother and another long-time friend. I've lived in Louisville for all but 4 years of my life (college). I really do love sharing my city with new guests. This is a town worth experiencing, and I'm always happy to offer suggestions on food, late-night, recreation, and the weird. Vacations for me are typically short and sweet - my wife and I will try to get away for a couple days to visit towns and cities we've never been. Usually more on the laid back side, but Vegas is on the itinerary this year. I look forward to you visiting my neck of the woods!

I own another property in the same neighborhood and am around the property from time-to-time to help in lawn care, maintenance, etc. Happy to swing by if there are ever any issues, and am pretty easy to get a hold of throughout the day if you are looking for any suggestions on sites during your stay.
