Olmsted Parks Conservancy President Layla George said, “We really hope it encourages more daily use here in the park and gets people active and exercising on the walking path. We've had a lot of children learning to ride their bicycles out here already and already had a lot of people out here walking.”

The project was a collaboration between the Olmstead Parks Conservancy and Louisville Parks and Recreation.
