When reporting an issue in a park please include location details. There is a details and description section near the end of the request process to help you provide this. Users can also​ utilize the pin (website) or X (mobile app) feature to provide specific location information inside the park. Please consider including a wide angle photo, which helps staff find and fix the problem. ​​​​​​​​

In 2021 resident interest led to the beginning of a path through Eisenhower Park, connecting Churchill Downs Park to Northbrook Drive (see project map). The Adopt-a-Park program accepted a special park project application for volunteers to cut brush and put down woodchips for a walking path​. As part of the review process, neighbor input was solicited. To view the survey response summary and and the August 2021 update, click here​. You can also review the July notice and original project communication here. Workdays happened in Nove​mber 2021, September 2022, October 2022 and work was completed on a final workday on November 13th, 2022. The trail now provides a new connection through the neighborhood. At the same time, work happened in Churchill Downs Park and the northernmost section of Eisenhower on a new retention basin. Work also included an unpaved path, which connects the park to Scio Church Road, further connecting the city.​
