Edgewood is a small residential community on the southern edge of Kentucky's largest city. Apartments for rent in Edgewood are convenient for commuting into the city or business travelers who need to hop into the next neighborhood over for the airport. The United Parcel Service Global Operations Center is on the western end of the neighborhood, but the area isn't just business. There are a variety of opportunities for individuals and families of all types to enjoy the community.
Just to the north of Edgewood apartment rentals, Taylor Memorial Park has offered adults and children year-round fun since 1940. The 11-acre park offers residents a place to cool off in the summer or keep fit in the winter. The swimming pool is large and has areas for young children as well as more advanced swimmers, while the park also has a walking path, basketball courts, a baseball diamond, a playground and a picnic area complete with grills.
For a more intensive and expansive natural experience, renters may want to drive 10 minutes to the south to Jefferson Memorial Forest. Named after Thomas Jefferson, the forest covers a massive 6,400 acres of land. The park gives residents a chance to camp, hike or bike in a serious forest without a long travel to their destination. There are also programs for children and adults to learn more about vegetation, wildlife and the Kentucky ecosystem.
Edgewood is located in the Jefferson County School District. Liberty High School and Indian Trail Elementary are the closest public schools, giving the children of Edgewood a place to learn with other children in the neighboring communities. Also local, Pitt Academy gives children with varying abilities and disabilities a more specialized alternative to other kindergarten through grade 12 educations. The UPS Flight Training Center is also nearby. Although not an accessible school like a public elementary school, the flight training center is just one of the aspects that makes the southern Louisville area unique.
Air travel from apartments in Edgewood is a breeze. The Louisville International Airport is a mere 3.5 miles away. But for renters with more local commutes, interstates 65 and 264 offer easy access to downtown Louisville. The ride is only nine minutes because of the convenient highway access. Residents can also catch the 43 bus on Route 864 for travel to downtown and the surrounding communities.
