Waterfront park to remain open during hot week ahead

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Although it was scheduled to be closed for repairs this week, Metro Parks has decided to keep the "Sprayground" at Waterfront Park open.

According to a news release from the city, the sprayground will remain open until temperatures drop.

The scheduled repairs involve patching damaged and worn areas of the rubber surface. The area will be closed for about 10 days once work begins.

The temporary repairs will allow the Waterplay area to remain open until early fall, when a new permanent surface will be installed.
