For Immediate Release:

Louisville – With school letting out soon for the summer, are there things to do at Louisville area parks for kids and their families?

What are the hours for parks? And what about any costs for recreational programs?

“We will be able to provide some answers and help parents out with some fun things for the summer,” says Councilman Rick Blackwell (D) 12.

Programs at Metro Parks are among the topics of the District 12 Dialogue hosted by Councilman Blackwell.

The main speaker for the District 12 Dialogue is Mike Heitz of the Metro Parks Department. He will give details about the city’s parks as well as answer questions about programs for families.

He will also talk about the planned expansion of Riverview Park.

Riverview Park expansion is included as a priority for the Metro Budget in 2006-2007.

Representatives of the Metropolitan Sewer District and Inspections, Permits and Licensing will be on hand to help any resident with a drainage problem or concern about a business in District 12

Officers of the Third District Louisville Metro Police Department will also be able to answer questions about the latest crime concerns and problems in the area.

“I encourage the people of District 12 to come out and tell me what is on their mind or just to say hello,” says Blackwell.

The District 12 Dialogue will be held at Shacklette Elementary School on Mercury Drive just off Lower Hunters Trace beginning at 7:00pm on Tuesday May 30th.
