WATERWORKS PARK

WaterWorks Park is an initiative NoLi CDC is executing in partnership with Kentucky American Water (KAW), transforming a fenced-off 1/4 acre property containing a 1 million gallon KAW water holding tank into a publicly-accessible butterfly garden and pocket park.  Designed with help from Lord Aeck Sargent and Gresham Smith & Partners, the project is being implemented through partnership with EcoGro.  In addition to turning inaccessible space into public space, the park at 124 York Street will educate and illustrate to visitors the role that water plays in their lives. The tank will serve as a canvas for multiple murals that will be placed via National Endowment for the Arts funding - a national call for proposals is anticipated for Spring 2017.

This mural was designed to celebrate African American and minority culture in Lexington Kentucky. This wouldn't have been possible without the help of so many individuals. Terry Stout the man with the vision. Charles Bthree the artist behind the design and Concept art.

The NoLi CDC would like to thank The National Endowment for the ArtsLexington Art LeagueKentucky American Water and the Gimball Foundation for all their contributions.

Thank you Kevin Angel for capturing this footage.
