General Info
Originally part of a one-thousand acre grant to General William Preston, Audubon Park was developed as a subdivision about 1910. Audubon Park Realty Company mapped the lots, planted the trees, laid out the roads, and designated the park areas. During World War I the realty company offered to the government 420 acres on the south side of the Audubon Country Club for living quarters of the soldiers. Later named Camp Zachary Taylor, in it's early days the cantonment was referred to as the "Audubon Park camp site". Today, it is simply known as Camp Taylor. In the early days a street car looped in the area with a station house near the center of the park and Louisville Railway Company ran a spur track. When the line was discontinued in the twenties, the station house was converted into a dwelling that still stands in it's original location today. The last of the tracks were removed in 1975. Residents have always protected and promoted the natural beauty of the area. Since the Park was named for the naturalist and bird artist John James Audubon, all but two of it's twenty streets were given names of birds. Because of the many dogwood and other flowering trees and shrubs, the Dogwood Festival, held the third weekend of each April, was initiated by the Garden Club in 1971. Six park areas are maintained at public expense. Flowers in the beds at the entrance and along Audubon Parkway are planted annually by the Garden Club. As funds become available, trees along the easements and in park areas are replaced by the City of Audubon Park and the Garden Club. At their own expense and with Council approval, individuals desiring immediate action also plant trees along easements. Residents live in 555 single family homes, eight apartment buildings and seven duplexes. There are six businesses, one church, and six parks areas within the city boundaries. Audubon Park was incorporated in 1941 and was raised to a fifth class city by the 1976 legislature. The City Hall at 3340 Robin Road was dedicated in October of 1987. In 1996, The City was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The City is managed by a mayor, six council members, the Clerk-treasurer, and the Chief of Police.
