LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A new park is in the works in Floyd County.
A ground-breaking ceremony was held Monday for the new Kevin Hammersmith Memorial Park. The park will be located just behind Northside Christian Church, off Charlestown Road in New Albany.
Hammersmith, who died in a car crash in 2011, was a long time board member and supporter of the parks system.
The park is made up of 35 acres and will be the new home of the New Albany Little League.
Construction is expected to wrap up in the spring of 2017.
