PROJECT FACTS

Christy’s Garden is named after Christy Brown, Louisville philanthropist and matriarch of the Brown Foreman family. The garden was constructed as part of the redevelopment and revitalization of the Paristown neighborhood, in downtown Louisville, which included the construction of the Old Forester Paristown Hall and renovation of the historic Louisville Stoneware building.  The garden is equipped with a high quality synthetic turf, outdoor performance pavilion and projector building, and is designed to host outdoor events, including screening films onto a large projection screen on the side of Paristown Hall.

The projector building was designed by Brown + Kubican to house a concession area on the first floor and a projection/controls room on the second floor.  Exposed structural steel braces are utilized in order to brace the building and provide some architectural interest.  Christy’s Garden opened in September of 2019.
