New to the Neighborhood?

Welcome to Deer Park! 


The Deer Park Neighborhood Association (DPNA) is so happy to welcome you to our neighborhood! We're thrilled to have you join our vibrant community and hope that you love it as much as we do. 


DPNA is a voluntary non-profit neighborhood association dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all residents. Our board meetings are held from 7-8pm on the first Tuesday of every month at the Bardstown Road Presbyterian Church, located at 1722 Bardstown Road and are open to all. 


Membership dues are $20 annually and can be paid on our website or by check to the DPNA board. Dues help support our various initiatives and events, which include fostering a sense of community, advocating for neighborhood improvements, and organizing social gatherings. 


Below you will find an overview of our initiatives and some logistic tips, such as recycling guidelines and tornado siren information, to help you navigate life in our neighborhood more easily. We look forward to getting to know you and working together to make Deer Park an even better place to live! Please let us know if we can do anything to make you feel welcome or help you as you settle in. You can reach us at


DPNA Initiatives and Opportunities 



Deer Park Parents: The Deer Park Moms and Deer Park Dads groups are a great way to meet other parents. Whether you're looking for parenting advice, friendship, or simply a chance to unwind and connect with other parents, we welcome you to join us! Both groups host monthly social events and informal meet-ups and we're excited to welcome you into our Deer Park family! Please contact or follow along on our social media accounts for more information.


Newsletter and Communications: Deer Park delivers a physical newsletter on a quarterly basis to every porch in the neighborhood and maintains the Deer Park Social Media accounts. If you’d like to help deliver newsletters, write articles, design, or help with social media, please let us know by emailing us at


Tree Champions: The Deer Park Tree Champion initiative offers residents the opportunity to enhance their yards and contribute to the community's tree canopy. For a donation of $35 to the Deer Park Neighborhood Association, participants receive a consultation with a trained tree consultant who helps select the ideal tree for their space. These 5-8 ft. Kentucky Native Trees are chosen to thrive in Deer Park, providing numerous benefits such as improved air quality, temperature regulation, reduced storm water runoff, and carbon emissions. Additionally, they support native birds and pollinators, contributing to the local ecosystem. The initiative includes professional planting in late October, along with a yard sign and watering bag. By becoming a Tree Champion, residents not only beautify their surroundings but also contribute to the overall health and well-being of the community.


Porchfest:  The Deer Park Neighborhood Association presents a free, low-key music festival throughout our community. Deer Park neighbors host various musicians on their porches to support, promote, and discover local artists.


Other Social initiatives that your DPNA dues pay for include Beer Park (June), NeighborFest (September), and WinterFest (December).
