Our Impact

Green Initiatives

Serving as a leader in environmental initiatives, preservation
of green space, and tree conservation.

We Are Commited

The Kentucky Horse Park is committed to serving as a local, state and national leader in the promotion of environmental awareness and implementation of green initiatives. Our goal has been, and continues to be, to serve as an educational model, showing the many visitors to our Park a myriad of ways they can learn to help the environment, while saving money.

Green Initiatives

Enviromental Stewardship and the KHPF

The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation joins the Kentucky Horse Park in its commitment to environmental stewardship and conservation.

Past KHPF projects include the purchase of an electric trolley, the implementation of waste can recyclables, and the conversion to LED bulbs.

In addition, the KHPF has launched the Kentucky Horse Park Tree Fund to support the Kentucky Horse Park’s goal of protecting the natural landscape of the Park’s 1,200 acres and investing in green initiatives.

Just a Few of Our Existing Green Initiatives

  • Kentucky Horse Park Tree Fund

    Some of the most important resources at the Kentucky Horse Park are our trees.  The Park is home to over 1,000 trees – representing 75 different species – with quite some dating back to the late 1700’s.  They beautify our park grounds, providing shade and shelter to our guests – both human and equine.  They are historic, iconic – and irreplaceable.

    The Kentucky Horse Park Foundation is embarking on an ambitious fund-raising campaign to protect the trees of the Kentucky Horse Park, both now and in the future.  We are establishing the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation Tree Fund to help us create a long-term plan with professional arborists, with the two-fold mission of attending to the well-being of those trees already living on the Park and establishing a new on-site tree nursery to ensure that replacement trees are always growing and available for future generations to admire and enjoy.
