About Watterson Park...

The City of Watterson Park is a fifth-class city in Jefferson County, Kentucky, located between Poplar Level Road and Newburg Road south of the Watterson Expressway.

The population of Watterson Park is just under a thousand people – small enough to promote a sense of community and safety, yet large enough to provide the basic amenities. Although situated away from downtown Louisville, Watterson Park enjoys an ideal location, with easy access to shopping, restaurants, transportation, lodging, financial institutions, churches, schools, and recreational and cultural activities.

The City of Watterson Park has a strong business base for a city of its size. We are the home and corporate headquarters of Yum! Brands, Inc. Other businesses located in our City include schools, restaurants, motels, printers, packaging, moving, storage, distributors, manufacturing, and construction, among others. We place a high value on our corporate citizens. Whether you’re expanding an existing business or starting a new one, we have a lot to offer, including affordable real estate, a strategic location, a safe environment, and a low tax rate.

Watterson Park is one of only 28 cities in Kentucky that belong to the Tree City USA program. Our forestry program has received the Tree City USA award from the Arbor Day Foundation annually since 2001.

The City of Watterson Park strives continually to improve the quality of life for our residents and businesses. We are proud of our City and invite you to check out this site and see what we have to offer!
