The 25th Anniversary of Waterfront Park is here! As our name suggests, we’ll soon be neighbors of theirs once we build the Waterfront Botanical Gardens. We’re excited to have such an awesome park as our neighbor – just steps away from our garden! Two world class attractions right next to each other. Great stuff!
Author and local historian Rick Bell just wrote a book about the development of Waterfront Park called “Louisville’s Waterfront Park – a Riverfront Renaissance.” The book features nearly 400 pages of beautiful photos and illustrations and the fascinating history of Louisville’s riverfront and Waterfront Park. You can read Bob Hill’s review of the book for the Courier Journal here. Buy the book here, or at your local bookstore.
Be sure to come out Sunday, May 22, 2011 at 2:00pm at the West Hall of Fame at Louisville Slugger Field. Rick will be giving a brief presentation about the book after which you’ll be able to get your book signed! Books are available for purchase at the event for $40 – that’s a five dollar discount off the cover price!
Hope to see you there!
