This multi-faceted design transforms the existing Richard L. Vissing Park from an overgrown, neglected and crime-ridden property into a vibrant, modern and desirable destination.
Park South incorporates a new softball complex for adult league play, complete with pressbox, concessions, sports lighting, batting tunnels, practice greens, sitting areas, playground and walking pathways. Park North is comprised of a multitude of public amenities, including two shelter house pavilions, restrooms, basketball courts, playground, open lawns, terraces and accommodations for a future dog park.
The entire park takes advantage of its natural setting by incorporating such sensitive environmental features as a stream riparian zone, bio-retention pond, bio-swales, rain chains, native plantings and woodland walking trails.
"I consider the changes to this park to be a real asset to the people of Jeffersonville and to our community"
