The City of Middletown

The Middletown Neighborhood lies in Eastern Jefferson county and operates as an independent city from Lousville. Many families decide that Middletown is a great place to live and therefore several neighborhoods have been developed with family living in mind.
The City of Middletown began as an early Kentucky settlement that was initially owned by a Revolutionary War veteran named Jacob Myers. An early map of, what it was known as at the time, Middle-town was only two and a half blocks wide and two blocks long. One claim on where Middletown's name derives from is that it is near the halfway point between Louisville and Shelbyville.
Today, several of the structures in Middletown are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, there are also two designated Historic Districts containing over one hundred properties each.

Cherokee Park and Seneca Park in Louisville, Kentucky

A few local restaurants in Louisville celebrate Monday Fund Days. People write in about needs or causes that could use support, management decides on one or several, and on a following Monday, all proceeds from that day go toward that cause.

I had the pleasure of working at one of the restaurants the day our fund was Save Hogan's Fountain TeePee Pavilion. It was an honor to donate money to something that I see every time I visit Cherokee Park and something I visualize every time I picture the park. Constructed in 1964, the pavilion has been around longer than I've been alive. However, as a resident of Louisville and a frequent visitor of the park, it is a place I've come to appreciate and look to as a common ground, a place I would meet friends before exploring the park, a place I would look to have family and friends gather; a place unlike anywhere else in Louisville.

Cherokee Park was originally designed by Frederick Law Olmstead in 1891. For more than 100 years, it has been a place where people can take in the scenery, see the large Victorian homes that surround the park, and keep active. The Scenic Loop extends for 2.4 miles allowing people to walk, run, play with their pets, or simply stop at a bench and people watch.

Seneca Park, the last to be designed by the Olmstead firm, is located between St. Matthews and the Highlands. Although Seneca is roughly 100 acres smaller than Cherokee, it stays just as busy if not more so, especially with the states 6th rated toughest golf course nearby.

Between the two parks, families and friends can participate in a variety of sports including, volleyball, tennis, baseball, basketball, and soccer. There are also playgrounds, tables for picnics or family reunions, and walking paths or trails for cross country and hiking. Either park you go decide to go to, you won't be disappointed!
