This Hidden Destination In Kentucky Is A Secret Only Locals Know About

As Kentuckians, we are all well aware of the natural beauty of our home state. From the Olmsted Parks in Louisville, to Cumberland Falls, and everywhere in between, our state has some breathtaking scenery. One of these places is the Yew Dell Botanical Gardens in Crestwood. This historical site may have national recognition for plant research and education, but not many people outside the world of horticulture know about this hidden destination, unless of course you’re a local.

Whether you’ve been to this hidden gem of Oldham County dozens of times or just once, it’s a place that is sure to lift your mood and brighten your day. You’ll probably see a plant you had no idea existed, and the surrounding landscapes and architecture will make you feel like you stepped out of Kentucky and into a proper English garden.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived elsewhere twice, but keep coming back. I'm a video editor and freelance writer who enjoys watching people wearing University of Louisville uniforms excel at sports, scaling the faces of large rocks, and hanging out with my border collie/laborador/cattle dog mutt thingy that I have.
