Klondike is a neighborhood in eastern Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Due to being on the edge of the old city limits, its boundaries are irregular, it is west of Hikes Lane and South of Breckenridge Lane. Development began after World War II, with developers Edward Butler and Chester Cooper purchasing and subdividing 45 acres (180,000 m2) of the Graff farm and part of the Hikes family's Midlane farm. The area is primarily residential and includes Klondike Park, from which the neighborhood derives its name. Local legend is that the park was named after Frank Bumann, a prospector from the Yukon who opened the park.
