This Little Known Park In Kentucky Looks Like Something Out Of A Storybook

It’s easy to miss the entrance of Hal Warheim Park if you’re walking through the Belknap neighborhood of the Highlands in Louisville. Nestled between two houses in a residential neighborhood, the entrance looks like it could just be someone’s driveway. But if you look closer and decide to follow the little unassuming path, it will lead you to a tiny public park called Hal Warheim Park, and it looks like something out of a storybook.

Often referred to as “the secret garden” or “the secret park,” Warheim Park is a perfect example of the potential that comes with unoccupied spaces, no matter how small they are.

The entrance to the park is located on the 1800 block of Overlook Terrace in Louisville.

Has anyone ever stumbled upon this secret park?
