I have lived jn this area for years and had no idea this place was here! We took a family visit for the Christmas setup, which was lovely but I really cannot wait to come back in the spring abd summer when the plants are all in bloom. I can certainly see why this place is an excellent wedding location.... More

This place is definitely a diamond in the rough, can't believe I never heard about it. The scenery is very beautiful and they have their own honey bees. Make sure you buy some honey at the gift shop. This is a great place to get some exercise and fresh air. I saw a lot of parents here with their little... More

I've been here a few times for fundraisers. The grounds are beautiful to walk around and enjoy all the different plants and there is an area to sit in and enjoy the spectacular views.

Yew Dell Botanical Gardens is one of the best wedding venues in the Louisville, KY area. Brides can get ready in a real castle. Walk down the aisle of Holly's into the perfect court yard. Ladyfingers Catering does the best job for catering the weddings and corporate events. Definitely, worth checking out this beautiful venue!

Yew Dell is a wonderful place to reconnect and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness. We were there for the hummingbird festival and it was an excellent event - very informative and interesting.

Great for a peaceful, contiplative walk. The site offers an interesting back story on how it came to be. It was kind of fun strolling around imagining how it may have been as a private residence. There is little to nothing for kids to interact with so that specific population is usually absent. Gardens differ depending on the season. Three... More
