History

Pleasure Ridge Park was first populated by French and German settlers in the mid-19th century. In the 1870s, a resort called Paine Hotel was developed; Paine Hotel remained a popular tourist destination until World War II. By the 1950s, residential development in Pleasure Ridge Park accelerated due to its proximity to both downtown Louisville and Fort Knox.

To the south of Pleasure Ridge Park lies the historic plantation house that is now a museum and venue, Riverside: the Farnsley-Moremen Landing. Visitors enjoy historical tours of the 1820 home as well as the beautiful trails and views of this 300-acre site on the Ohio River.

For a more active arts and cultural scene, Pleasure Ridge Park residents head to "Museum Row" and the many galleries and theatres downtown as well as attending annual events such as the Humana Festival of New American Plays held each March.

With ample on-street public parking and easy access to Dixie Highway and Interstate 264, Pleasure Ridge Park residents often get around town via car, though TARC, the Transit Authority of River City, serves the area with routes 50, 18 and 63. While cabs don't cruise around the Pleasure Ridge Park area, residents can call a taxi or contact Uber for a ride. Pedestrians and casual bikers find the quiet residential streets safe and welcoming despite the lack of biking lanes in Pleasure Ridge Park. For a longer ride, cyclists can head to the trails along the Ohio River throughout Louisville.

Shopping

While Pleasure Ridge Park residents go to other parts of town for major shopping, Dixie Highway does have some clothing stores such as Marshall's. For a wide selection of funky independent boutiques, locals head to Bardstown Road in southeast Louisville. Vintage fashion fans love visiting consignment and thrift shops such as Urban Attic, the Nitty Gritty, and Acorn Apparel. Locals also enjoy visiting Blush Boutique.

While Pleasure Ridge Park doesn't host a farmers' market, residents make the commute downtown to the Gray Street Farmers Market on Thursdays during the summer. On Saturdays, residents have plenty of choices: head over to the Bardstown Road Farmers' Market or north across the river to the New Albany Farmers Market.

Parks

Exercise-centric residents of Pleasure Ridge Park visit Iroquois Park for great hiking, jogging and cycling on the extensive trail system in this free park.
