LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It has been called a diamond in the rough.
Charlie Vettiner Park, near Jeffersontown, is getting $760,000 in improvements with more to come if the city can come up with the money.
Jack Martindale comes to the park at least three times a week to fly his remote controlled sail airplane with others. He says the park gets a lot of visitors.
"I've never been down here that there weren't people walking their dogs, walking themselves and doing all kinds of activities," he says.
Martindale is glad to see all of the recent improvements to the park.
"Anything they can do to make the park more functional, more beautiful," he says, "and I think they have."
Metro Parks Director Mike Heitz says the improvements made here were all identified by park users.
"This is the first phase of implementing the master plan for Vettiner Park," says Heitz.
The improvements include additional parking, speed humps, a longer walking path, and drainage and erosion control.
"Here we have about 300 acres, an 18 hole golf course, it is already a pretty green park, and these investments are making it even greener," says Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer who held a news conference Monday morning to celebrate the completion of phase one of the project.
"The county is beginning to be well served since merger," says Heitz, "and I think all of our county parks are looking better and better every day."
When more money is found, more improvements will be made to the park.
"We've got about five more phases to go," says Heitz, "there will be new shelters, more roadways, it will make it a beautiful park when we are finished."
The master plans calls for spending $5 million to complete all of the improvements at Vettiner Park.
It will likely take many more years before the plan is complete.
