About Hal Warheim Park

Hal Warheim Park consists of nearly an acre of public green space featuring a play center, swings, a pavilion, a bridge with dry wash rocks underneath, benches, a drinking fountain, gardens, a little library, a meditation space and wonderfully carved art created from its fallen trees.

While Louisville Metro Parks Department holds the title to Hal Warheim Park, responsibility for the supervision and maintenance of the park rests solely with the Warheim Park Association and funding comes entirely from donations and fundraising. The park’s maintenance, preservation, and improvements are managed by the Warheim Park Association Board of Directors, an all-volunteer group of individuals comprised of residents in the immediate neighborhood. Warheim Park Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and funds reside at the Community Foundation of Louisville.

“I believe that it is providential that, years ago, when this neighborhood was developed, this little scrap of land was unwanted and ignored and grew into a dangerous wilderness and dumping ground. But it was destined to one day become a safe, peaceful and beautiful resource for all the neighbors and future generations. So now, let us open the earth and let our dream be born!”
