‘Inside Louisville’ talks with leaders of Waterfront Park revitalization and expansion efforts

For Release: 09/12/23 10:01 AM

It wasn’t long ago that the 85-acre green space we now call Waterfront Park was an eyesore littered with abandoned buildings and scrap yards. Today, it is the most utilized urban park in Louisville, welcoming more than 2 million visitors a year, and been named one of the country’s best riverwalks by USA Today.

On this episode of Inside Louisville, host Kelsey Starks talks with the non-profit’s resident and executive director Deborah Bilitski about the transformation that’s still underway today. Additionally, Ted Nixon, chair of the Waterfront Park’s phase IV campaign, joins to us share what’s next as the park begins a massive $50 million expansion.
