Waterfront Park expansion heads west
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's Waterfront Park may soon be making its way west.
City officials have now decided it's time to make an expansion to Waterfront Park.
The Metro Council recently approved a $40,000 "Waterfront Park West" development plan. The new plan calls for the addition of a new park on 20 acres of vacant, city-owned land just west of 10th Street.
City officials say the long-term plan of "Waterfront Park West" is to connect Portland, Shawnee and Chickasaw neighborhoods to downtown.
Executive director David Karem says the new park could have a playground, amphitheater and perhaps a lawn for festivals.
