The Maples Park is the very first park owned and managed by the City of Crestwood. The 22 beautiful acres were purchased by the City in 2005 from Vincent Fanelli whereas, the Fanelli family gave strict stipulations to the sale indicating that the property use should only be for creating opportunities for recreation, environmental exploration and entertainment for the community. These 22 acres, known historically as “The Maples” due to the abundant site maple tree plantings along the former entry road, was once used for small-scale boutique farming and country-side enjoyment.

Nestled within the Briar Hill neighborhood on the east side of Crestwood, these 52 mostly wooded acres were preserved by the development for a beautiful community park. Maintained by Oldham County Parks and Recreation, both active and passive recreation can be enjoyed at this local amenity.
Located on the west side of Crestwood and maintained by Oldham County Parks and Recreation, this park is a haven for baseball fanatics and the home of the South Oldham Little League. With lighted baseball fields and ample parking, the park is popular on summer evenings. Recently a paved walking trail and dog park were added as well as new tree plantings.
