Construction is underway at Louisville’s newest park.

The 10.9-acre Windsor Park is located at 2401 Lamborne Blvd. on land donated to the Metro by the Metropolitan Sewer District and the Windsor Forests Homeowners Association. It will be the first park in District 25 — which represents the Parkwood, Waverly Hills, and Prarie Village areas in Louisville’s South End — and will feature a splashpad in addition to a pre-existing trailhead for the 100-mile long Louisville Loop.

Mayor Craig Greenberg, District 25 councilmember Khalil Batshon, and other community leaders broke ground on the project on Friday.

The Metropolitan Sewer District first acquired the land that will become Windsor Park in 1996 to mitigate flooding from Pond Creek and to restrict future development. The $1.3 million project is expected to be complete by this summer or early fall.
