LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell will join Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer for a ceremony marking the start of the final phase of construction of one of the city's largest park projects.
The Parklands of Floyds Fork covers some 2,400 acres and is touted as a "world-class addition" to Louisville's parks system.
When completed, the project will include four major parks linked by a road and trails along Floyds Fork, a stream large enough to allow canoeing.
Nearly $35 million in infrastructure and amenities make the park project one of Louisville's largest ever.
