South Points Buy Local Fair
Iroquois Park is one of the largest and prettiest in the city. Be there from noon to 4 pm, and browse local goods for free. Go to the amphitheater at 1080 Amphitheater Road, and go shopping. You’ll find a kid’s area and food court, a craft beer garden and all sorts of amazing local products. Wine, pumpkins, crafts -- you never know what you’ll end up finding here.
Iroquois Park is a sprawling getaway that people all over Louisville love. There are plenty of hiking trails, athletic fields, places for picnicking and lots of places for kids and pets to play. Just outside the park, you’ll find the Beechmont neighborhood.
Buying into Beechmont
Several neighborhoods are built around beautiful Iroquois Park, but Beechmont stands out for its historic architecture. You'll notice the charming turn-of-the-century homes here right away, cozy homes built in the 1910s and 1920s that still bear the stamp of those days of early American design. You'll see many Craftsman style homes, as well as styles that date to the 1930s and 1940s. Many of the homes here have been preserved and restored over the years to maintain their beauty, but not necessarily their old plumbing and electrical systems. Lots of homes in Beechmont have updated infrastructures and newer features, so residents get all the benefits of modern living while living inside gorgeous architecture.
Beechmont was named for its many trees, another feature of the neighborhood you'll notice. The shady trees and quiet streets make Beechmont a perfect neighborhood for families. The Iroquois Library, Beechmont Community Center and several schools are all located within Beechmont, not to mention several small parks and other places for families to visit. When you visit this October, you may be tempted to do a little buying in Beechmont yourself.
