Tyler Park Historic Bridge Walkway

Construction continues on the Tyler Park Restoration, which will include a new accessible walkway under the park’s historic bridge.

The $1.1 Million Tyler Park restoration, which included work on the historical tennis courts and sprayground (completed this summer/fall), as well as the restrooms and playground (currently under construction), is set to be completed this winter.

Thanks to input from the Friends of Tyler Park and the Tyler Park Neighborhood Association, a 9-foot-wide accessible walkway funded by the City of Louisville will replace the stairs underneath the bridge (similar to the rendering shown here) as the last phase of the project.

This walkway will not only improve accessibility between both sides of the park, but will also enhance the vista through the bridge’s tunnel and feature plantings to better control stormwater and flooding. Construction is set to begin on the walkway this winter and should be completed by the Spring.
