Tyler Park Restoration Project

Back to News & Updates

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

This lovely 13-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.

East side of bridge:

  • Two tennis court set will be repaired and resurfaced
  • Four tennis court set will be repurposed to feature two tennis courts, one half-court basketball court and two pickleball courts
  • Rain garden and infiltration basin will be installed to address drainage issues
  • New picnic tables and benches will be added
  • Walking paths will be improved

    West side of bridge:

    • Playground and sprayground will be moved and equipped with modern features
    • Natural area playground will be added
    • New picnic tables and benches will be added
    • New restroom building will be constructed
    • Additional parking spaces will be added for improved accessibility

    The Tyler Park Master Plan also includes a 25-person pavilion which 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 and CEO of Olmsted Parks Conservancy.

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

    Tyler Park Neighborhood Association has helped fund park improvements over the last few years including a new walkway on the northeast side, installation of more than 10 park benches and planting of many trees and shrubs.

    Groundbreaking for this project will take place in spring 2019.
