New date: Join us for our annual Beechwood Park Spring Cleanup!

Because of a change in the weather forecast, we’ve moved our date to Saturday, April 17, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. It’s still part of the Mayor’s Give A Day 2021. Beechwood Park is on Beechwood Avenue between Baxter and Bardstown Road adjacent to Mid-City Mall. We’ll provide gloves, face masks, hand sanitizer, and cleanup equipment. Come out and enjoy one of Louisville’s newest parks!

We’re thrilled to be part of Thursday’s Give For Good Louisville!

We have a chance to be a part of the Louisville’s annual day of giving — an opportunity to unite our city around causes in which we truly believe, and help nonprofits connect to the larger community.

We’re now partnering with Bloom Elementary

Nature play area

Rendering of the nature-based play area for Bloom students.

The 550-student Highlands public school one block away plans to use the park in two ways:

  • An outdoor classroom for an interactive learning experience. With seating and an open central area, this space is designed to be a flexible area for education, events, and formal gathering within the core of the park.
  • Nature play area, incorporating elements of playgrounds and nature into a universal accessible space for children and adults to interact with nature. This area is designed for creativity and imagination.

The park would complement the hardscape play area now used by students on the school’s campus, just steps away on Lucia Street.

Bloom to Beechwood
