The centerpiece of the primarily residential Hurstbourne neighborhood is the Hurstbourne Country Club.
Hurstbourne is one of 83 incorporated taxing jurisdictions comprised of about 60,000 properties within Jefferson County, Kentucky. These municipalities are separate cities within the larger metropolitan city limits of Louisville. These 2nd class through 6th class municipalities have their own governments with elected officials and councils. "Satellite Cities" may provide various government services and expanded amenities to citizens such as dedicated police and fire services, sanitary and recycling services, and/or parks. Citizens that reside in a satellite city may have a separate tax bill or an additional tax rate applied to their tax bill to pay for these services.
The Hurstbourne neighborhood is generally bounded by Shelbyville Road (Route 60), Interstate 64 and Hurstbourne Parkway South.
