Go on Santa’s Safari December 20
Santa and Mrs. Claus are coming to the Louisville Zoo on December, and they won’t be alone. Go on a holiday safari at the Zoo to see some of Santa’s friends from the North Pole, including Frosty the Snowman himself.
From 10 am to noon, the Zoo will get taken over by the North Pole. Stop to visit with Mr. Claus himself before you visit the workshop. The elves there will teach you how to craft toys like them, so you can make something for Christmas to take home. Mrs. Claus, always a perfect hostess, has treats and refreshment to offer. That means coffee for the parents and chocolate for the kids, hot drinks that are perfect for December (or when you’re in the North Pole).
Join in the holiday sing-along before you take your safari through the zoo. You’ll visit the heated buildings and speak to zoo educators who can tell you more about the animals who live in Louisville, and maybe some of the ones who live near the North Pole. Feel free to bring your camera to take pictures of your own while you’re here. After all, it is a safari. Call ahead to make reservations, and book your trip to explore the wilds of the Louisville Zoo and the North Pole.
A Visit to the Park
Audubon Park is surrounded by nature. The zoo, the Beargrass Nature Preserve and the sprawling Audubon Country Club are all around the neighborhood. That's why this community has its own Forest Board, Garden Club and Parks and Recreation Board. Audubon Park, like the green areas that surround it, is full of beautiful plants, lawns and landscaping. Trees cover the neighborhood, and landscaping fills the common areas. Audubon Park prides itself on its beautiful views, quiet atmosphere and well-kept homes.
Outside Audubon Park, you can find all sorts of big city excitement. The Fair and Expo Center is a short distance away, and you need only drive for a few minutes to get quick access to the expressway. Bellarmine University and the airport are both a short drive away, and there's plenty of stuff to see and do once you get close to these busy areas. But inside the neighborhood, all is quiet and calm. The charming homes are made for families of any size, built with details like stucco siding and fireplaces. Many of the homes have been updated with modern features over the years.
Audubon Park is an historic neighborhood, but it continues to keep up with the modern times and the modern attractions that surround it. Take your own little safari through Audubon Park this December, and you'll see why this Louisville neighborhood is so special.
