Jeffersontown lawn care services
Jeffersontown has a long, distinguished history; in the late 1700s, it was a stop for the early pioneers looking to cross the Ohio River near Louisville. As time passed, farmers began to work the rich soil in the area that is now Jeffersontown. Abraham Bruner bought 122 acres in 1794, and in 1797, he incorporated 40-acres as the city of Jefferson. However, for many years, it was called Brunerstown by the residents, but eventually, the official name of Jeffersontown finally stuck.
In 1966, 600 acres of the old farming acreage was covered by the Bluegrass Commerce Park. The park was the first of this type of development in the U.S. with its pretty, park-like setting. Today, the Bluegrass Commerce Park covers over 1,800 acres and is home base to some 850 businesses. The Bluegrass Commerce Park is the largest in Kentucky, and its 38,000 employees make Jeffersontown the third-largest city for employment in Kentucky.
Life in Jeffersontown is pretty good; in fact, Jeffersontown scores an enviable 79 on the livability score, ranking it as better than 92% of all other places in the country. It's safe, and has good schools, making it an excellent place for families to settle down and grow roots.
The center of Jeffersontown is Jeffersontown Gaslight Square. Over the last few years, Gaslight Square has become a dining and entertainment destination, popular for its modern vibe and walkability. The Gaslight Festival was inaugurated on June 7, 1970, and by 1977 an estimated 150,000 people attended the Gaslight Festival. Today, the annual Gaslight Festival spans eight days and encompasses a parade, a 5K race, and a motorcycle rally. The weekend of the Gaslight Festival is a three day festival with more than 250 vendor booths, carnival rides, and live music.
Likewise, the Saturday Farmer's Market at the Jeffersontown Pavilion on Watterson Trail is a weekly gathering place for the whole community to buy local farm fresh vegetables, fruits, and much more. There are numerous vendors selling everything from craft cheese and baked goods, to local honey and craft items.
Charlie Vettiner Park is a beautiful place to take a stroll and enjoy the spring flowers or fall colors. The park also features an 18-hole golf course, sports fields, fitness course, a dog run, hiking trails, and a fishing lake. It's an excellent place for the whole family to have fun.
Skyview Park is another place to enjoy nature, play sports, and have a relaxing weekend picnic. The 25 acres Jeffersontown Veterans Memorial Park memorializes our veterans with a Walk of Veterans with a tank, a torpedo, and a Huey helicopter.
The park also has playgrounds for the children, a basketball court, and a softball field. The covered picnic area with grills are a popular place for family barbecues, and a lovely nature trail leads through the woods along a creek. The open spaces are perfect for playing, frisbee, or simply throwing down a blanket and soaking up the sun.
The Gaslight Recreational, Workplace, and Pedestrian Trails were created as unique scenic walking routes to encourage physical activity and family fun while establishing walking trails between where residents live and work. These are multi-use trails for walking, running, biking, and skating. There are five miles of trails, weaving throughout the town, connecting the neighborhoods.
