Tyler Park Restoration Project

Olmsted Parks Conservancy and Louisville Parks and Recreation are happy to announce plans have been finalized for a $1.1 million project for Tyler Park.

This lovely thirteen-acre Olmsted-designed park, unique with its irregular shape and rugged terrain, was established as a park in 1910. The centerpiece is an historic bridge which adds character to this loved neighborhood greenspace. Keeping in mind the park’s uniqueness, historic features and needs of today, a solid plan for restoration was created.

Plan for the east side of the bridge:

Plan for the west side of the bridge:

Master Plan also includes a 25-person pavilion but it is not funded at this time.

“We are all pleased to see the start of this project as it will greatly improve the park for the neighborhood and its visitors,” stated Layla George, President Olmsted Parks Conservancy.

This project is possible because of financial support from: donors to Olmsted Parks Conservancy’s Campaign for Extraordinary Parks; City of Louisville; Mayor Greg Fischer; Councilman Brandon Coan; and Louisville Parks and Recreation.

Tyler Park Neighborhood Association has helped fund park improvements over the last few years including a new walkway on the north-east side, installation of more than ten park benches and planting of many trees and shrubs.

Groundbreaking for this project is estimated to be late this Fall.
