Gheens Foundation Lodge

Beckley Creek Park

The Gheens Foundation Lodge epitomizes the style of architecture around the parks. The interior is snug and wood-paneled, while the floor to ceiling windows and light-filled rooms make it the ideal venue for a range of event sizes and functions — weddings, galas, memorials, or board meetings.

Put an event on your horizon.

The Gheens Lodge can accommodate meetings of up to 35 people in The Parklands Room or 300 guests in the UPS Great Room, with its soaring windows that afford views of lawns sloping down to Floyds Fork. Rental of the Gheens Lodge includes the Creek View Terrace, and guests can use the Event Lawn to integrate indoor-outdoor events. The ambience is cozy and secluded, but you’re only a 20-minute drive from downtown Louisville. Available by appointment only or to guests during scheduled events.

See the forest and the trees.

There’s a lot of ground to cover at The Parklands, so before you head out here, feel free to use our Google Tours function to get the bird’s-eye view of our amenities.
