Shared Use Parkway Path

April 20, 2011

parkway project

Frederick Law Olmsted Parkways shared-use path system project will create improved pedestrian and bicycle opportunities along approximately ten miles. This great parkway system links the major Frederick Law Olmsted Parks in Louisville as well as the numerous neighborhoods that are traversed.

The parkways included in this project are Algonquin, Eastern, Southern and Southwestern. Additionally, the planning effort will explore the ways to link the parkways near the University of Louisville, as intended by Frederick Law Olmsted’s original design. The project is being supported by Metro Parks, Olmsted Parks Conservancy and several federal multimodal transportation grants. Preliminary work is in progress.
