Tyler Park Restoration Project

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

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 & CEO of Olmsted Parks Conservancy.

This project is possible because of financial 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 January 2019. Estimated completion is slated for Summer 2019.
