Help us beautify Elliott Park
TELL US HOW WE CAN IMPROVE Elliott PARK TO BETTER SERVE YOU AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY.
OLMSTED PARKS CONSERVANCY AND LOUISVILLE PARKS AND RECREATION NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE ELLIOTT PARK BEAUTIFUL AND VIBRANT.
We’ve teamed up with Gresham Smith and Taylor Siefker Williams to create a new Master Plan for Elliott Park, which will enhance this beloved neighborhood greenspace and better serve the surrounding community.
Now you can help shape the future of Elliott Park by sharing how you use the park and suggestions for improvements in a quick 14-question survey by visiting our website: olmstedparks.org/elliott502.
I TOOK THE SURVEY. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Other than the wonderful new playground installed in Elliott Park last year, the park hasn’t seen significant capital investment in decades. So when the opportunity arose to develop a Master Plan for the Elliott Park, we wanted 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 rich history of Elliott 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 ELLIOTT PARK
Elliott Park, a 4-acre Olmsted Park, located at 630 S 28th Street in the Russell neighborhood, was designed by the Olmsted Brothers in 1906. The park is an oasis of green, sandwiched between residential homes on the east, industrial areas to the north and west, and retail in the south. Throughout Elliott Park’s history, the baseball field has served as the park’s central fixture.
Olmsted Parks Conservancy and Louisville Parks & Recreation are currently working with our partners to create a new Master Plan for Elliott 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 Elliott) and 6 connecting Parkways which have served Louisville residents for more than a century.
