Bingham Park is on Coral Avenue, just south of Brownsboro Road, in Clifton.  One of eighteen Olmsted Parks in Louisville, Bingham features a playground, spray pool, restrooms and a well-used basketball court. Unfortunately, like many of our parks all over the city, Bingham was vandalized last year, resulting in significant damage to a restroom.

As a result of the vandalism and other concerns raised by neighbors, my office recently appropriated District 9 funds to install security cameras in the park.  The cameras are monitored at LMPD’s Real Time Crime Center and recordings are available in case they are needed.

We are blessed with many parks in District 9, including Champions, Seneca, Eva Bandman, Crescent Hill (home of the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center), Beargrass Creek Greenway, Bingham, Breslin, Clifton, Eastover, Irish Hill, Kennedy Court and Story Avenue.  Maintaining them is a priority for my office and improving security is one way to do that.
