The City of Prospect takes no position one way or the other about whether or not to allow trick-or-treating and other Halloween celebrations this year, but instead leaves that decision up to individual households. That said, please take note of Governor Beshear’s October 26 recommendations for “red zone” counties (such as Jefferson County) to help manage the spike in COVID-19 infections, which include:
- Do not host or attend gatherings of any size
- Avoid non-essential activities outside your home
- Reduce overall activity and contacts and follow existing guidelines for defeating COVID-19
Furthermore, we recommend you follow the guidance for celebrating Halloween safely provided by the Kentucky Department for Public Health.
The book sale scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled.
The Harrods Creek Park parking lot and kayak launch will be closed this coming Sunday November 17th until approximately 1 pm to accommodate the 3rd annual Harrods Creek Trail Bash 5k and 10k run. Spectators are welcome.

Prospect will again be offering a variety of 75 free trees to residents at Arborfest on October 26th from 10 am to 2 pm (or as long as the trees last). Most are mid-sized tree species, and many are spring bloomers. Quantities vary so come early for best selection!
We will also have industry professionals available to answer questions and help with picking a tree, as well as tips on proper mulching and protecting trees from deer. Trees will be available behind City Hall.
This year’s tree offering includes: several varieties of dogwood, jade magnolia, Carolina silver bell, trident maple and serviceberry
