We are open during Frankfort Avenue re-paving, please be prepared for roadwork when traveling to the Gardens.

Photo Tour of Frankfort Avenue and the Heigold House Facade

The Waterfront Botanical Gardens will be built at the very end of Frankfort Avenue where it intersects with River Road. Here’s a photo tour of the Frankfort Avenue corridor (which starts at Shelbyville & Lexington and extends westward all the way to the Ohio River) from Camille McManus.

At the end of the slideshow you’ll see photos of the Heigold House facade – which is directly adjacent to the Waterfront Botanical Gardens site. You can learn more about the Heigold House facade here – or you can go on a bike ride adventure of your own and check it out in person! While you’re there take a photo of yourself in front of our site and post it to our facebook page!
