Beechmont is a neighborhood located immediately south of I-264 (known locally as the Henry Watterson Expressway) in Louisville’s South End. The neighborhood, which takes its name from the beech trees in the area, was once a summer home for many of Louisville’s wealthiest residents looking for a pleasant escape from the hustle and bustle (and summer heat) of the city.
Future residents will love Beechmont for the neighborhood’s wide range of homes, ease of access to several points of interest, and the magnificence of Iroquois Park at their footsteps. Home prices begin in the $30s, and can climb as high as the $450s.
Beechmont was originally a part of the city of Highland Park, all of which was annexed into Louisville in 1922 after a five-year-long court battle; Highland Park would eventually be razed as the Henry Watterson and parts of Louisville International Airport took hold of the neighborhood between the end of World War II and the early 1990s. Mean commute to work comes to 21.5 minutes per ZipAtlas -- besting Kentucky’s 28.6 minutes and the nation’s 26.3 minutes -- with frequent local transit service along two routes provided by TARC.
Beechmont is generally bounded by the Henry Watterson to the north, Southern Parkway and Southland Boulevard to the south, Taylor Boulevard to the west, and Third Street, Allmond and Louisville avenues to the east. The aforementioned Watterson Expressway becomes I-71 in northeast Louisville and I-64 in the northwest, connecting residents to St. Louis, Lexington, and Cincinnati.
Beechmont is to the northeast of Louisville’s Yellowstone, Iroquois Park. Designed by famed American landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead, the 739-acre park is built upon a large knob with old growth forest, and features a high lookout point with views of the Jefferson Memorial Forest to the south, and downtown Louisville to the north. A ton of activities and features are available at Iroquois Park, including archery, basketball, three multi-use and two walking trails, fishing, picnic areas, etc.
Music and theatre lovers in Beechmont will have another reason to visit Iroquois Park: Iroquois Amphitheater. The 2,348-seat amphitheater was constructed in 1938 as one of the many projects of the Works Progress Administration, and was renovated by Metro Parks between 2000 and 2003. Several concerts, musicals, and free movie showings occur throughout April to October, while productions from October through April are held inside the 100-seat Parkside Studio black-box theatre atop the historic amphitheater's stage.
If golf is more your thing, Iroquois Park is also the home of Iroquois Golf Course. The 18-hole, 71-par course is open year-round, with a range of green fees that won’t hurt your wallet. While no driving range is available, new Beechmont golfers can warm up on the course’s putting and chipping greens.

Dare to Care Kids Cafe in the center offers children 18 and under a warm meal in a safe environment, along with educational and extracurricular activities.
