Great speakers stated the need for Louisville’s parks and the importance of keeping them healthy for the community: Dan Jones,┬áChairman and CEO of 21st Century Parks and founder of The Parklands of Floyds Fork and George Tinsley entrepreneur and owner of┬áPenGeo, Tinsley Family Concessions, and Diversified Distributing.
