Review of Warheim Park By: Jeanette

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketWarheim Park could quite possibly be the quaintest little park in the Louisville area. My oldest son and I finally found the park after asking a couple, who were walking, for help. It is located at 1832 Overlook Terrace in the Highlands area. It just has a rock with its name engraved on Overlook Terrace where you park on the street and take the path down to the play area. They have a place to park your bike as well so no bikes are allowed back in the park. It is a small park with one picnic bench, 2 swings, a gazebo with a bridge, a couple of slides and some climbing things on the playground. It has a small area of grass space – good for throwing ball or kicking the soccer ball, lots of beautiful landscaping with several adult swings. The gazebo had bricks with names and quotes to read. This park is well shaded and backs up to residential houses. One of the houses even had a chicken coop! It would be a great place for a picnic with the family or a getaway from the family to read a book. The park was very clean and well maintained. However, there were no bathrooms there so keep that in mind.

Be sure to check out the website to learn more about this unique park as it is community owned and a protected green space. This was a vision of Hal Warheim who even has a little notepad on the gazebo to leave your thoughts about the park.

Looks like a great park... but I tend to steer away from ones without bathrooms, for obvious reasons.
