Meet Louie the Lightning Bug at the Louisville Zoo April 10
Now that Spring has sprung, Funday Mondays are back at the Louisville Zoo. Take the kids to this special day and pay a discounted admission rate to get inside and get a look at all the incredible exhibits. It actually is a little bit more fun when you pay less than regular price.
From 10 am to 5 pm, general admission to the zoo is only $5.25. Get there early, because from 10 am to 2 pm Louie the Lightning Bug will be at the Mini City. During Funday Monday, there will be zookeeper talks all about the animals who live at the zoo so kids and parents can learn a little bit more about them.
The Louisville Zoo is packed with different habitats and amazing exhibits. Visit the animals of Africa while you're here, and be sure to stop at the Gorilla Forest. Go to Australia to see exotic animals, and head over to Glacier Run to see how the coldest animals live. Visit the tropical Islands exhibit to get warm again!
Go to 1100 Trevilian Way to find the zoo, and find out more about the animals here. After you have a Funday at the Zoo, go to the neighborhood right next door: Audubon Park. There's a beautiful park and country club right next to this neighborhood, where all the streets are named for birds. Shaded with trees and filled with family homes, Audubon Park definitely isn't a neighborhood that's for the birds -- though, they do live here, too.
Fly Through Audubon Park
Birds love Audubon Park not just because the streets are named for them, but because of the many mature trees sprouting up to shade the homes in the neighborhood. You'll find them lining the streets of this residential neighborhood, designed with straight streets that wend their way alongside the country club and park.
An historic neighborhood, Audubon Park is full of turn-of-the-century homes styled in stucco, brick and stone. You'll see classic traditional architecture, beautiful Cape Cod designs and pretty family homes of all types. And while many of these homes were originally designed decades ago, they've been updated inside to give homeowners newer plumbing and electrical systems, not to mention modern fixtures and appliances.
Audubon Park is surrounded by schools and family-friendly attractions, including the Louisville Zoo. Go take a walk on Louisville's wild side at the Zoo, then go see the shaded streets of pretty Audubon Park. You won’t want to leave anytime soon.
