Set up Camp in Camp Taylor
The Louisville Nature Center is just a couple blocks away from Camp Taylor, the historic neighborhood built around Taylor Memorial Park. After its first life as a working military base, one of the biggest in the country, Camp Taylor became a neighborhood full of pretty family homes. Camp Taylor was built at the end of WWI by returning soldiers who were ready to settle down, and people have been settling in this pretty family neighborhood ever since. See the charming 1920s homes in Camp Taylor, and you may get some new ideas about building a home garden right here.
Camp Taylor is within minutes of some of the city's biggest attractions, like the zoo, the Mega Cavern, the Nature Center, the Expo Center and the beautiful Audubon Park Country Club and golf course. People here have quick access to the Watterson, the culture-rich Highlands neighborhood and all the fun stuff that happens regularly in this part of the city, like Gardenganza. Go get some new ideas this April, and go see Camp Taylor for yourself.
