Bingham Park Master Plan
Help us beautify Bingham Park
Tell us how we can improve Bingham Park to better serve you and the surrounding community.
Olmsted Parks Conservancy and Louisville Parks and Recreation need your help to make Bingham Park beautiful and vibrant.
We’ve teamed up with Gresham Smith, Taylor Siefker Williams, and University of Louisville graduate Urban Planning and Sustainability students to create a new Master Plan for Bingham Park, which will enhance this beloved neighborhood greenspace and better serve the surrounding community.
Now you can help shape the future of Bingham Park by sharing how you use the park and suggestions for improvements in a quick 14-question survey by visiting our website: olmstedparks.org/bingham502.
I took the survey. What Happens Next?
Bingham Park hasn’t seen capital investment in decades – so we want to make sure we do this right and with the support of dedicated park users like you.
After we review all of the survey responses, we’ll be holding private meetings with stakeholder groups to gain a deeper understanding of the community’s needs.
We’re also researching the history of Bingham Park to ensure that the Master Plan reflects and/or maintains the spirit and integrity of the Olmsted’s original design for the park.
Once we have a solid foundation to work from, we’ll be inviting you to a series of public engagement sessions this summer to share our recommendations with you and get your feedback.
In the meantime, keep an eye out on our events page or if you’re feeling generous, become a member to support ongoing community efforts and programming in your favorite Olmsted Parks.
About Bingham Park
Bingham Park, a 4.39-acre Olmsted Park, located at 160 Coral Ave in the Clifton neighborhood, was designed by the Olmsted Brothers in 1915. Originally named Clifton Park, in reference to the area’s topography, the park was renamed in 1938 to honor Robert Worth Bingham.
Olmsted Parks Conservancy and Louisville Parks & Recreation are currently working with our partners to create a new Master Plan for Bingham Park.
AN Olmsted Park
In 1891, the City of Louisville hired the landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted – famed for creating Central Park in New York – and his sons to create a park system in Louisville. Today, our city is home to 17 Olmsted Parks (including Bingham) and 6 connecting Parkways which have served Louisville residents for more than a century.
Established in 1989 as a private, non-profit partner to Louisville Parks and Recreation, Olmsted Parks Conservancy enhances, restores, and protect’s Louisville’s historic 17 Olmsted Parks and 6 Parkways while connecting nature and neighborhood to strengthen our community’s well-being.
