Florence Nature Park is Refreshed and Renovated!

Nature Park & Shelter Reservations

We have some changes coming to the Nature Park!

The Florence Nature Park Project has completed the first phase of renovation which consisted of remodeling the existing Evelyn M. Kalb Gathering House by making site improvements to the property.  The interior of the Gathering House included a new wood beam ceiling, tile flooring, windows, relocated and renovated bathrooms, and an expanded and remodeled kitchen area.  The exterior included a new deck, roof, siding, sidewalks reconstruction of exterior bathrooms and landscaping.  Reservations are now being accepted for 2019.  You can contact 859-647-5416 for information and reservations.

The second phase is coming in the fall of 2019.  Located within the heart of the Florence Nature Park, surrounded by soaring trees and wildlife, is a stunning new Event Center which is now under construction.  This unique nature setting will provide guests with a venue capable of hosting weddings, social events, award ceremonies, team building exercises, corporate gatherings and more.

The Event Center will accommodate:
-134 guests for a seated corporate event
-100 guests for a seated wedding event
-134 guests for a seated outdoor lawn corporate or wedding event (tent not included)
-118 parking lot spaces

This versatile Event Center meets a demand in the community and will quickly become known for its lofty ceilings, stone facade and craftsman Kentucky feel.  The City will announce the grand opening of the Event Center to the residents once it has been completed and we are ready to accept reservations.
