Take a Walk with Louisville History at the Crescent Hill Reservoir June 12
Go walk through Louisville's past this June with Walking Wednesday at the Crescent Hill Reservoir. You'll get a look at one of Louisville's oldest landmarks, which has recently been renovated so this unique piece of history can be preserved for future generations. You'll have the chance to tour the gorgeous Gothic architecture and even ask the expert staff questions.
Walking Around the Reservoir
During Walking Wednesdays, you'll have the chance to see the famous Crescent Hill Reservoir and Gatehouse. A complete renovation was finished inside and out on these structures in 2014. During this time, the amazing terracotta ceiling was cleaned and restored. The limestone steps were repaired as well. The Gatehouse was designed to look like a German castle that sits on the Rhine River, a place that fascinated chief engineer Charles Herman when he saw it in person over a century ago.
You'll get to see it all. The Reservoir opened in 1879 to provide Louisville residents with clean water. Today, the reservoir holds 110 million gallons. Take a walk around the serene waters of the reservoir. The path is just under a mile long, and it’s open from dawn until dusk. Walking Wednesday lasts from 11 am to 7 pm.
Find the Reservoir at the corner of 3018 Frankfort and Reservoir Avenues. When you're here, you'll find yourself just a few blocks outside of the Rolling Fields neighborhood.
Reserve Some Time to See Rolling Fields
The curving, winding streets of Rolling Fields are between the Crescent Hill Golf Course and the Louisville Country Club, surrounded by shade trees and amazing real estate. Nearby Brownsboro Road has plenty of places to visit, including a salon, restaurants and all those stops you need to make when you're out running all the usual errands. There are schools nearby, and the Ohio River is just a short drive away.
There's lots of stuff to enjoy all around Rolling Fields, but it's the real estate inside the neighborhood that you're probably going to love most. This community is full of stately homes in brick and stone construction. Tall white columns, chimneys, big lawns, circular driveways and leafy trees are everywhere you look here.
The homes in Rolling Fields have multiple bedrooms and thousands of square feet of space. The beautiful homes are surrounded by landscaping and filled with high-end features inside. Stone counters, custom cabinets, hardwood floors, crown molding and gleaming stainless steel are common here. And if you happen to fall in love with Rolling Fields, that’s a pretty common reaction, too.
