At Progress Park, Louisville residents can get away from the hustle and bustle of city life without even having to leave the city. Situated just 11 miles from downtown in the Buechel neighborhood, Progress Park Airstream resort has something for everyone and is the perfect spot for an all-inclusive glamping experience with its five vintage Airstream trailers, two houses and a bunkhouse.
Owned by longtime friends Valerie and Mike Pifer and Nick and Carey McDowell since 2016, Progress Park sits on a sprawling 12 acres that have a variety of activities for the whole family, including tetherball, four beaches, a playground, hiking trails, a volleyball net, as well as canoes, kayaks and paddle boards for the two acre pond. Along with its wide range of outdoor activities, all units have smart TVs with streaming platforms and guests are provided with Wi-Fi access. Fun Fact: four out of the five Airstreams are named after a grandmother of each owner.
