With all the recent talk of BRAC and the much anticipated influx of families affected by the realignment, we wanted to showcase some of the local area in our blog. Radcliff Kentucky is just outside the Army post at Ft. Knox Kentucky and is a community that has seen many changes in recent years.
One of the larger employers in Radcliff is Cardinal Heath which is located at 501 W Lincoln Trail Blvd., and they manage medications for nearby hospitals and distribute medical and surgical supplies.
Close by is the Colvin Community Center which brings an Olympic junior size pool as well as a wading pool for younger children, tennis, basketball, shuffleboard and lots of playground equipment. There is a fully equipped kitchen and meeting rooms for your community get-togethers.
Next door to Colvin Community center is the Radcliff Justice Center and we were lucky enough to be by there to watch the local fire department decorating the Christmas tree with their ladder trucks.
Another active shopping center nearby is home to the Peddlers mall, a great place to shop for antique's and handmade crafts as well as lots of other interesting things, and the government contractor Northrop Grumman and a 24/7 Fitness center, Snap Fitness, as well as a golf shop and driving range. With several other stores from nail salons to dollar stores there seems to be a variety to suit most anyone.
Another unique thing about the Radcliff area is all the Antique shops you can visit. If you are a fan of antiquing, this is the area for you because several of the nearby smaller communities are well known for their small, family owned shops and eateries.
Other places of interest include shopping at chains like Walmart, Food Lion, some smaller chain stores like Hibbits and Cato, and restaurants like Applebees, Jerry's, Asian Buffet, and others with German food, Korean, Mexican and Mom and Pop type establishments. There is sure to be a favorite for every member of your family.
A couple other places that are unique to Radcliff are the Challenger Learning Center where local students get a memorable hands on experience and where some local events take place. Also the skate park located at the entrance to Radcliff City park. This has been a place for youth to practice their skating skills in a safe place.
This community is very much about the children with fun places like Blazers Family Fun and a Roller Skating rink and lots of other places to enjoy with friends and family.
