Jeffersonville Gets 105 Acres For Park

Last updated on Sunday, May 27, 2018

(JEFFERSONVILLE) - A southern Indiana development group has donated 105 acres for a new park in an Ohio River city.

The River Ridge Development Authority donated the land to the city of Jeffersonville. The land, valued at about $1.4 million, will be used for the planned 114-acre Chapel Lake Park.

The News and Tribune reports that the park will feature a lake, playground, hiking trails, shelter areas and restrooms. It will be more than twice the size of the largest park in Jeffersonville, a city just north of Louisville, Kentucky.

Mayor Mike Moore says the park will be a great amenity for residents and visitors. He says the park will be less than 2 miles from about 1,600 residents.
