While you're here doing Tree Triage, you'll be right next to the Cherokee Gardens neighborhood. Spend some time in this beautiful Louisville community, and you'll know exactly how it got its name.
The Park and the Gardens
Cherokee Gardens is next to Cherokee Park on one side and Seneca Park on the other. This neighborhood is surrounded by green, but it's also covered with green inside. The homes are set on large lots that are shaded with well-manicured landscaping and tall trees.
The distinct architecture captures styles from the last 150 years, because that's how old this neighborhood is. Even the more modern homes are styled with intricate details and styles that harken back to the early days of Louisville. This is where you'll see tall brick homes, whimsical wooden houses and beautiful living spaces styled to suit families of any size.
Take a walk in the Gardens before you help save the trees in Cherokee Park, and you'll find that your time has definitely been well-spent.
