Elliott Park Update – March 2024

Back to News & Updates

Exciting progress is being made on the $2.9 million project in Elliott Park that will transform the historic green space in Russell.

  • Hand-built seatwalls bordering the plaza in front of the field house are taking shape.
  • Paint colors for the field house have been selected, painting has begun, and the ceiling is being installed.
  • Concrete for the spray pad has been poured.

Olmsted Parks Conservancy worked with park neighbors and stakeholders, including ElderServe, the Louisville Gators youth football league and other community organizations and park regulars to create a community-informed vision for Elliott Park’s future. The Conservancy then worked with Taylor Siefker Williams and Gresham Smith to formalize the Master Plan for the park.

Funding for the Elliott Park restoration comes from Olmsted Parks Conservancy, city budget allocations and the American Rescue Plan. Olmsted Parks Conservancy raised $725,000 from local donors, including the James Graham Brown Foundation and LDG Development. The City of Louisville matched the Conservancy’s investment with a $650,000 capital allocation in Mayor Fischer’s fiscal year 2022 budget. Mayor Fischer then allocated another $500,000 in American Rescue Plan funding and in 2023 Metro Council approved, at Mayor Greenberg’s recommendation, another $1.1 million to complete the project. Elliott Park is located two blocks from the new West Louisville Norton Hospital and Goodwill Opportunity Campus.
