2.4.20 UPDATE: Trestle Point, the section of the Louisville Loop that runs between Beckley Creek and Pope Lick parks, is now back open! A new closure will begin along the Louisville Loop in Turkey Run Park. Keep an eye on our website for an official alert with date and more details.
A section of the Louisville Loop between Beckley Creek and Pope Lick parks will be closed to visitors starting Monday, January 13, 2020. This section, known as Trestle Point, spans from the south end of Beckley Creek Park at Echo Trail Road, to the north end of Pope Lick Park at Taylorsville Road.
Heavy equipment will be in use along this section of the Louisville Loop as workers replace a wooden bridge on the path. For their safety, visitors should respect all posted barricades and signs advising them to stay out of this area.
Visitors will still have access to the Louisville Loop within Beckley Creek Park—from Miles Trailhead to Echo Trail Road. Visitors looking for a lengthier excursion should begin their walk, run or ride in Pope Lick Park and head south.
Work is expected to take three weeks to complete, weather permitting. Please check back here for the latest updates. This is the first of three locations scheduled to close for major repairs. Additional locations and dates will be announced later this year and posted to the website.
UPDATE: The Trestle Point section of the Louisville Loop is scheduled to re-open on Tuesday, February 4, weather permitting. Check back here for the latest updates.
This work is part of our commitment to “No Deferred Maintenance” made possible thanks to donations from individuals, families and organizations throughout the community. The Parklands of Floyds Fork does not receive tax dollars for annual upkeep or operations. Ongoing maintenance and operations of our trails, facilities, gardens and natural areas are funded solely through private donations and an endowment fund. Community members may contribute to the annual fund by becoming a Parklands Member at www.theparklands.org/member.
Being a donor-supported public park means we rely on donations, not tax dollars, for annual operations each year. Because of your generosity, we are able to maintain, program, and further develop this extraordinary public space without charging an entry fee. Together we work to enhance quality of life and help our community and economy grow in ways that are healthy, sustainable, and enjoyable for people of all ages. Help us reach our goal of sustaining The Parklands by becoming a Member today. Members make it happen!
