Making a Community


Living in the urban interior and in the largest historic preservation zone in the country comes with its challenges for all of us.

Central Park West Neighborhood is an association dedicated to making our corner of Old Louisville a better place to call home.

By working together, we make a difference - we are a community.

Our Vision

Our vision is to utilize our shared resources to protect and promote shared core values of Beauty, Safety, and Inclusion.

Our purpose is to promote and foster a welcoming and inclusive community through civic participation of shared core values (i.e. Beauty, Safety, and Inclusion).

We will support this vision through partnership with neighborhood entities such as Waterstep, Shakespeare, the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council and its subcommittees, and the Old Louisville Brewery, et al.

Our vision includes a plan to protect green spaces (Beauty) through active civic engagement (i.e. tree plantings, neighborhood and metro cleanups); Improve the quality of life of neighbors by participation in block watches, “roll call nights” sponsored by local district law enforcement, and educational programs offered by local fire department (Safety); Promote a stronger sense of community with those that reside and work within the neighborhood by increasing communication in media and other public venues (i.e. website, social media, welcome packet, social events) (Inclusion).

A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. You can make a bequest to CPW by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the organization, or by designating CPW as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.

Remembering CPW with a bequest from your estate will help sustain and strengthen the organization in years to come and continue its mission of neighborhood improvement and preservation.
