The Beechmont Neighborhood Association invites you to the Festival of Flowers on Saturday! Buy flowers and plants, meet neighbors, and more at this annual event. In addition to plants, artisans will be selling items, and food will be available for purchase.

Take a tour of the Louisville Water Tower and Cresent Hill Gatehouse and Reservoir on Saturday, 11:30am – 1:00pm. Tickets must be purchased in advance.


The Rose Island Tours start April 4th with a guided tour of the former resort and many stories of days long gone. Meet at the Portersville Bridge on Trail 3 every Sunday at 2:00 pm and Saturdays at 10:00 am and tours usually last around 2 hours. 


 

The hiking trails miss you and the sun will be shining this weekend! Here are some local options that are great for families. It’s ok if you get dirty, just plan ahead and pack some old sheets or towels in the car. If the kids get muddy, you have stuff to cover the car seats or floors. 


Are you eligible for a free Kentucky Science Center membership? Check here.

Mask up and head for learning fun. With all of the levels, everyone is really spread out. One our recent trip we learned the higher you go up, the fewer the people around!
