Breaking Ground for Family Fun | Park Expansion and Fall Festivities
A message from our Executive Director, Deborah Bilitski:
This month, we are excited to announce that we are breaking ground on Waterfront Park Phase IV, the 22-acre westward park expansion! This $50 million project between 10th and 14th Streets along the river will bring Waterfront Park’s world class amenities within a short walk of over 12,000 residents and will include amenities that will attract visitors from throughout the region and beyond. After years of planning, community engagement, property acquisition, and fundraising, we have raised $26 million of the $50 million needed and we’re ready to move forward with construction of the first phase of this transformational project – an outdoor experiential learning area we’ve designed in partnership with Kentucky Science Center. We are grateful to all of our supporters and the thousands of community members who have attended forums or completed surveys which guided the direction and design of the project, We look forward to the seeing this vision become a reality and will continue to keep you updated with our progress.
