Waterfront Botanical Gardens: Master Plan Executive Summary

This beautiful Master Plan was designed for Waterfront Botanical Gardens in 2014. Since that time, they have been raising money in the community and as of January 1, 2017, they raised enough money to move forward with breaking ground on the project: Louisville’s own world-class botanical garden.

Starting with a 23-acre waterfront site that was once home to the Ohio Street Landfill—closed in the early ‘70s after operating for more than 30 years—the Gardens are transforming a degraded landscape into a beloved destination for Louisville and a global icon for sustainable redevelopment.
