LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear says his upcoming budget plan will include devoting $10 million to support an expansion of Waterfront Park into western Louisville.
Officials said Tuesday that the 22-acre park expansion will connect downtown and West Louisville along the Ohio River in Kentucky’s largest city.
The total cost of the expansion is $50 million. Beshear will submit his budget proposals to the legislature early next year.
The park expansion will be in the Portland neighborhood within West Louisville.
The expansion will include plazas, gardens, and an observation pier at the river’s edge that can accommodate events, performances, and other gatherings.
