Metro Parks and the Louisville Olmsted Parks Conservancy are planning a large handicapped-accessible playground designed for interactive play, and a restoration of the Sunnyhill Pavilion, which has been out of service for several years.
- The project is unfolding in two phases. Phase I includes the playground, a restroom building, paths, parking, and landscaping.
- The pavilion restoration is Phase II
$1.45 million in funding has been obtained through the Louisville Olmsted Parks Conservancy ($350,000), the DREAM Foundation ($500,000), and Metro Louisville Government ($575,000).
Phase I was completed in Summer 2007. Phase II is dependent upon federal funding, and is scheduled for 2009.
IMPACT ON PARK USAGE DURING CONTRUCTION
The Sunnyhill Pavilion is currently out of service, and will remain in that state until the project is complete.
