The Old Fashioned Days
The Old Fashioned was popular in the 1800s, which makes it perfect for Woodlawn Park. This neighborhood is close to the shopping center, and it was once the home of a race track. Churchill Downs wasn’t the first. Woodlawn was there first. Tiffany’s, the famous jewelry store, designed the ornate Winner’s Cup. The cup had to be buried to protect it during the Civil War.
Woodlawn Park looks very different these days. There is no more racetrack, but there are many beautiful homes with large lots. The neighborhood is designed for peace and quiet. Many streets end in cul-de-sacs, so there isn’t a whole lot of through traffic. Nearby Hurstbourne Lane and Westport Road offer various shopping and dining distractions. There are also schools, stores and fun diversions around.
There’s nothing old fashioned about Woodlawn Park these days, except maybe for the interesting history. There’s lots to do and see nearby, and this neighborhood is popular with families of all sizes.
