Purchasing a house in Owl Creek is not just about the real estate value. It’s about the community. Creating a connected and caring community environment is our main priority. Owl Creek is a very special place where neighbors become good friends, and people do matter. We continually strive to create ways to make life easier for our residents, and here are just some of the many benefits that everyone receives when they move into this neighborhood.
- Full-time on site management staff to answer your neighborhood questions or concerns promptly
- A monthly newsletter with details on upcoming events, committee activity, notifications, photos and volunteer efforts
- Providing a list of trusted contractors based on resident referrals
- Offering a Helping Hands group on standby to help a neighbor in need by raking leaves, shoveling snow or dropping off a home-cooked meal
- New resident orientations from managers, and a personal welcome from a member of the Board or Welcoming Committee
- Email blasts of community news, notices, and reminders
No matter what your age, background or interests, Owl Creek has something for everyone. Our neighborhood offers many different social activities to choose from. Book Club, Men’s Cards, Children’s Play Group, Swim Team, Basketball League and so much more. There’s also a calendar full of events to enjoy with friends and family, such as the New Years Eve Party, the Giant Easter Egg Hunt, Splash Jams at the pool, Super Bowl Party, Happy Hours and the annual Halloween Party & Chili Cook-Off! The OC Calendar is packed full of fun every month.
Ours is a community where neighbors meet each other and build long-lasting relationships–where we feel the nostalgia of a Labor Day Bike Parade, and are still patriotic enough to get excited about our 4th of July flag ceremony. A place where families can build a cardboard boat and race it in the pool against other families, a place where we can hold an annual Father-Child Campout that regularly draws over 300 participants. A place where we can convert our grounds into an Oktoberfest each year, complete with authentic music, German dancers, a beer garden and great food. And all of these events are managed by volunteer residents–not hired staff.
In short, it is fair to say that Owl Creek is a community with soul. Our events, groups and activities are the envy of other neighborhoods. Owl Creek’s residents give to their community willingly, finding their own fulfillment in the success of the place they call home.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

“Looeyville…Looavul…Lewisville…No matter how you say it, Louisville offers a safe, welcoming environment that will make you feel right at home. It will not only feed your soul, but your appetite as well…the dining scene is amazing! Nationally acclaimed chefs create on-of-a kind dishes in kitchens throughout Jefferson County.
Louisville is named among the top five “most stable real estate markets” by Zillow.com and eighth in Forbes’ 2014 America’s Most Affordable Cities.
There’s easy access to green spaces here, anchored by an Olmstead-designed park system and the vision to build the nation’s largest urban park system. This nationally-recognized City of Parks initiative is preserving the area’s green spaces with a 100-mile paved walking loop trail that will tie together Louisville’s diverse parks and neighborhoods.
And Louisville knows how to celebrate! Home to Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, Jefferson County kicks off a two-week Derby Festival with Thunder Over Louisville, the nation’s largest annual fireworks display.
So whether its taking in a AAA baseball game at Slugger field, a concert at the KFC Yum! Center, a stroll around the Kentucky Fair, a visit to the Muhammad Ali Center or the Louisville Zoo, the area offers a variety of activities to enlighten, entertain and educate people of all ages.”
