Jeffersonville park converted into community green space

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Jeffersonville ball park is being turned into a community green space.

For decades, many people didn't know they were playing on top of a war grave site at Colston Park.

Now, Mayor Mike Moore says the softball field is being demolished and will be turned into a green space for the time being.

But in the future, Moore says he'd like to see the area redeveloped into commercial space and says there are already people interested in doing it.

To help future planning, archaeologists have mapped grave sites.

The canal project and the Big Four Bridge could determine what happens with the property later on.
