Anchorage City Services

Anchorage SignThe City of Anchorage, KY governs itself for the most part. They have their own mayor, city council, police station, fire department, post office, and school.  Anchorage has that small town appeal while remaining part of the Louisville area.

Set Sail for Anchorage: A series exploring Anchorage, KY

               Store front Anchorage, KY Yesterday I took a stroll through Anchorage, KY. The sun was shining, temps were in the lower 80’s, and a slight breeze made for the perfect day. I walked past the post office, to the church while admiring the cobblestone and brick paved sidewalks, I stopped to read the names and graduation dates of city members printed on the brick pavers surrounding a city bench.

The mostly paved trail is clearly marked at all intervals and has several off road paths for bicyclist or those on horseback. This trail is perfect for pet lovers, with several stations containing plastic bags and trash cans for any mess your furry friend leaves behind.  On a recent walk, I was delighted to see so much wildlife. Sitting on one of the many benches along the way, I took a moment to just listen.  The symphony of bird calls made for a serenade so peaceful that I could have fallen asleep. Willow Lake is serene and mesmerizing. The water sparkles in the sunlight reflecting the trees and a few stunning homes that border it.

                This trail was finished in 2008 and made possible by funds from John Schnatter, owner and founder of Papa John’s Pizza. He wanted to preserve a piece of land, free of development,...
