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.
