Before Churchill Downs ever existed, the neighborhood that is Wilder Park was a racetrack of its own. After the track here closed, Wilder Park became a pretty neighborhood full of homes with the fairgrounds on one side and Churchill Downs on the other. You just can't beat this location.
The neighborhood itself has a park, a gym, several little shops, a community center and of course, a collection of pretty homes. The bungalow-style houses here have multiple bedrooms and classic design. Inside, homes here have modern features like arched doorways, hardwood floors and recessed lighting.
