LATEST NEWS - SEPTEMBER 27
On Monday, September 26, 2011 Metro Parks conducted a public hearing for input on the Toonerville Trolley Park Master Plan, which included not one but two areas for the Old Louisville Dog Run (see yellow squares on the plan). The plan calls for two areas: one to be located on the existing grassy area towards the rear of the park and the other on the existing tennis court. Each area is approximately 100' x 115'. The idea is that the dog run on the tennis court would be used in inclimate weather and in the winter. The plan also calls for construction of sidewalks to promote pedestrian circulation within the park, trees, and building a new playground area near the historic gates. The next step is review by other governmental agenices. If approved, then a combination of Metro Council, LDRA and developer funds would be used to implement the plan. Please check back later for more information.
