Project Description

A 130-acre park south of Louisville, KY was underutilized and under-appreciated. Recent growth and shifting of residential and commercial needs due to recent economic development in the surrounded areas. Changes included the addition of an Amazon Fulfillment Center.

MCFA conducted field visits and reviewed all existing conditions inclusive of important flood needs due to the park’s location on Salt River in a flood plain. In addition, the team analyzed regional context and connectivity to define opportunities for future links to surrounding forests and parklands. Monthly meetings with the community and stakeholders were held to consider, define, and evaluate all goals and plan alternatives.

The Park Master Plan will guide future development of the park and surrounding downtown residential and commercial areas with phase options.
