LOUISVILLE, Ky -- You'll pay a price to park at Waterfront Park...the decision comes over opposition by the Metro Council President. The Waterfront Development Corporation Board has approved parking fees for the park, $3 for three hours Wednesday-Sunday.
The parking fees are to offset loss of funding for the park when Gov. Bevin cut the state's support. Metro Council President David Yates says other options should have been considered before the Board voted to implement the fees. Yates fears the parking fees will deter some of the city's poorest families from going to the park.
