Kenton County Seeks Feedback for New Park

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Kenton County is seeking feedback from residents for the new, 225 acre Kenton County Park located on Independence Station Road which neighbors Lincoln Ridge Park. The first opportunity for input will be at a public meeting on April 14th at 5:30 PM via Zoom.

Kenton County is seeking feedback from residents for the new, 225 acre Kenton County Park located on Independence Station Road which neighbors Lincoln Ridge Park. The first opportunity for input will be at a public meeting on April 14th at 5:30 PM via Zoom. 

“This is an incredible opportunity to expand park services and recreational programming,” said Judge/Executive Kris Knochelmann. “Feedback received will help us build a master plan for the park and a roadmap for years to come. We want to make sure this new park meets the needs and wants of our residents.”

The meeting will be led by Human Nature, the organization hired by Kenton County using grant monies to create a Master Plan for the park. The Master Plan consists of three phases: awareness, exploration, and vision. The County is currently seeking feedback for the first phase which is information gathering from multiple sources on what the site currently has (inventory) and what it offers (analysis) and developing a program for the site that will inform the design.

Meeting attendees will watch a short presentation and then be asked various questions regarding amenities and features. They will be able to ask questions and post comments in the chat feature of Zoom. The link for the meeting is available here.

For those unable to attend the meeting, a copy of the presentation and survey can be found on the Kenton County website new park project page. The survey will remain open until April 30th. Paper copies are available at the Parks & Recreation Office located at Lincoln Ridge Park.

Kenton County converted the land into a park in August of 2020. The new park is currently open for passive recreation, including hiking, fishing, biking, wildlife observation, and walking. Visitors are welcome on the property from dawn to dusk and are asked to be mindful of the two adjacent golf courses. The address is 604 Independence Station Road, Independence, KY 41051. Parking is available at the shelter. There are no concessions or restrooms currently available.

For questions about the public meeting, please contact Kenton County Parks & Recreation at (859) 525-7529 or via email. There will be future opportunities for public feedback. Continue to check the Kenton County website for updates.
