Here’s the latest design by Gresham Smith and Partners, the well-known landscape architecture firm with an office in Louisville. This is a bird’s-eye view looking down on the site:
The design imagines the park in three major areas, left to right:
- Nature Play. An open children’s area with tree swings and natural playground equipment such as rocks and finished tree stumps to climb on.
- Family Room. A gathering place using a footprint based on a Victorian home, with benches and arches.
- Side Yard. A more serene garden-like setting serving as a retreat for reading and contemplation.
Note: Beechwood Avenue borders the top. Mid-City Mall is directly below, and Bardstown Road is to the right.
