Park Alliance of Louisville
FOCUS AREA: ENVIRONMENT
PROJECT: Maple Street Park Nature Playground and Outdoor Classroom
How this funding will impact this organization:
The Maple Street Park Project fills a critical gap in access to outdoor space for 20 Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS). The new JCPS elementary school adjoining the YMCA near Maple Street will be located on a constrained urban footprint. JCPS and the YMCA are committed park champions and anchor institutions, bolstering the project’s sustainability. LPF is raising funds, engaging residents in park design and investigating a new governance model through which LPF and community members operate the park.
The park, playground and classroom will feature fully-inclusive natural play structures, a wi-fi enabled classroom, plants, pathways and more.
