Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --Parklands of Floyds Fork is about to launch the largest urban conservation project of its kind in Kentucky.

Mayor Fischer and others unveiled details of the multi-million dollar project involving the Parklands of Floyds Fork on Thursday.

A $3 million grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust will be used to restore natural ecosystems in the parks, and improve habitat for plants and wildlife.

"This will allow anyone in Louisville to come out and be educated about, see in their native habitat all of the great bio-diversity that we have here," 21st Century Parks CER Dan Jones said. 

By the way, the final phase of the Parklands Project, Turkey Run Park and Broad Run Park, are expected to be finished this year.
