West Louisville event brings community together

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - West Louisville has its share of crime and violence, but today the community highlighted its positive side.

It was all part of the West Louisville Appreciation Day at Shawnee Park.

Metro Parks sponsored the event, which is designed to highlight the outdoor benefits that West Louisville has to offer. 

People enjoyed archery, rock climbing and food.

Those who attended say it's all about being with the ones you love, and not having to hurt.

"It's important that we keep family together," said Joyce Marshall, who attended the fundraiser. "And then to have this west end family day, it makes a big difference to come together for something besides a death of a problem. We're just coming together to enjoy family."

A booth was also set up for participants to take a short survey. The feedback from it will help expand outdoor recreation-related projects in West Louisville.
