Community update: Eisenhower Park​ Pathway Project 

December 2021

There has been resident driven interest in establishing a wood chipped path through Eisenhower Park, to connect Churchill Dow​ns Park to Northbrook Drive (see project map). In 2021 the Adopt-a-Park program reviewed a special park project application in which permission was granted to volunteers to cut brush and put down woodchips to identify 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 hereThroughout winter there are efforts to continue to cut brush and establish the walk through path. Contact [email protected] to find out more about this project. 

Access and Parking

The park can be accessed off of Dundee Drive​ or Churchill Drive, and there is street parking available on each street. The park can be accessed through Churchill Downs Park, but Churchill Downs is currently closed due to construction of a stormwater basin.​

The park can be accessed on foot and bicycle by walking or riding through the neighborhood streets.
