South Park View is a home rule-class city in Jefferson County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 7 at the 2010 census. The community was named for its location near South Park Hill, elevation 902 feet (275 m), the highest point in Jefferson County. It is the smallest incorporated city in the commonwealth of Kentucky.


South Park View incorporated as a city of the 6th class in April 1961. The city was a residential suburb until the expansion of the Louisville International Airport realigned runways and created noise levels that the Federal Aviation Administration considered "significant." During the 2000s, residents were relocated and an enterprise zone industrial park replaced much of the housing, resulting in a population loss for the city from 196 to 7 between the 2000 and 2010 censuses.
