If you enjoy walking, running or biking through Cherokee Park or if you live near Tyler Park, then be aware of a very important date coming up. Louisville Metro Parks and the Olmsted Parks Conservancy are planning two public meetings in one location on Oct. 6 to discuss plans for the future of both parks.
“As we work to ensure the future enjoyment of these parks by everyone, it’s important to let everyone know about any possible changes or ideas on the horizon,” says Councilman Tom Owen (D-8).
The meetings are the third in a series of sessions to develop master plans for both sites. It will be held at St. James School, 1818 Edenside Drive.
“If there is something that you like about either of these parks or if there is something that you think would be of benefit to everyone for their enjoyment, come out and speak up,” says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9).
The discussion will be divided into two sessions. The first from 5:30pm to 7:00pm will deal with development of the Hogan Fountain master plan located in Ward-Pugh’s District. The discussion about the Tyler Park plan, which is in Owen’s District, will follow at 7:15 p.m.
Metro Parks and the Olmstead Parks Conservancy are developing the Master Plans. Owen is helping fund some of the cost of the Tyler Park study. Other meetings have already outlined the highlights and short comings of both parks.
This meeting will feature a presentation of the alternative preliminary plans for both Tyler Park and the Hogan’s Fountain area. Officials will collect input from the meetings for consideration of the final plans.
