Louisville Water Company
The Location of Louisville's water filtration plant and reservoir. The walking path on top of the reservoir is open for public use. Unfortunately, the gatehouse at the reservoir is only open on select days during the summer. Across Frankfurt Avenue, you can see the rest of the Water Company's facility filled with notable architecture. Along the reservoir, posts tell a brief history of the reservoir and surrounding facility.
Backstory and Context
Visitors of the reservoir should be made aware to see it they must be able to climb the stairs up to it. The gate surrounding it closes at sundown so visits should be planned accordingly. Fans of walking can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the reservoir learning a bit of history along the way. If one doesn't want to partake in a lap around the reservoir, they can always stay at the front and appreciate the unique architecture of the gatehouse. There is an iron fence between the path and the water, but children should of course be supervised near the water.
