Fantasy Forest is located at the corner of Second Street and Logan Street just west of Dolly Graham Park playground. Supported by a grant from the City of Frankfort, the forest was planted by community members in 2010. Fantasy Forest is one of only a few urban micro-forests in Kentucky and contains over 150 species, including rare species, medicinal plants, and many butterfly host and nectar plants.

Our location close to the Kentucky River attracts a diversity of interesting bird and beneficial insect species. Be sure to open the “Door to the Underworld” to see what insects you can find. The park has several picnic tables including one near the community garden—feel free to pick a fresh cucumber or tomato for your lunch.

The volunteer group Friends of Fantasy Forest helps maintain the park with regular work parties. Tours for up to three people can be scheduled by contacting the volunteer coordinator at 502-682-8279 or [email protected].
