Whisper Walk to Battle Cancer September 13
Join the community of Douglass Hills for the annual Dee Edwards Memorial Whisper Walk, and help to raise awareness (and much-needed money) for ovarian cancer. You’ll have the chance to get a good look at the Douglass Hills neighborhood while you participate in the 5k walk. Not only will you be serving a good cause, you’ll get a chance to engage with the community.
In the Hills
Until the 1970s, Douglass Hills was mostly farmland. A sizable chunk of the land was owned by James Douglas, whose name was eventually used for the title of the neighborhood. Today, Douglass Hills is a sprawling residential area with its own attractions and events. This neighborhood strives to maintain a community spirit. This Louisville neighborhood has a modern look, but many wide-open, green areas are still in evidence. The rolling hills of Douglass Hills still look a little like beautiful farmland.
Douglass Hills has its own swimming pool, which is great in summer, and two parks that are nice throughout the year. Warren Walker Park has its own walking track. There’s even a middle school at the center of the neighborhood.
A September Stroll
Join in on the annual Dee Edwards Memorial Whisper Walk, and you’ll have the chance to get a good look at this community with your own eyes. The walk starts at 502 Gatehouse Lane, in the parking lot of the Douglass Hills Pool. Registration begins at 7:30 am, and the walk starts at 8 am.
