Pleasure Ridge Park History

Pleasure Ridge Park (often referred to simply as PRP) is located in southwest Jefferson County.  The neighborhood is reasonably close to both Downtown Louisville and Fort Knox.  This area has been provided with new employment opportunities due to the UPS Worldport Expansion at the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport.

Okolona has seen an increase in small-scale retail in the last few years.  A new Super Wal-Mart opened in the city in 2008 on the Greenbelt Highway. Since the completion of the Greenbelt Highway, many subdivisions have been built along or near the belt to allow for easy access to I-264 and I-265.  

Pleasure Ridge Park real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Pleasure Ridge Park neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999.
