Visitors to Jefferson Memorial Forest often pass through Fairdale. On their blog, Louisville Metro Parks say the city is trying to make Fairdale more accessible by pedestrians and cyclists, and to encourage the growth of retail and dining for visitors. There’s also a new library coming to the area.

The Parks blog says the improvements are designed to “help Fairdale retain its rural character and make the area more attractive and easier to navigate for visitors.”  How will this be done? Residents are welcome to sound off. The department says public input will be sought on parks-related changes to the Fairdale Area, and updates will be announced on their website.
