A groundbreaking ceremony for the first phase of the Health Park was held December 7, 2016.
This phase of the Health Park project will take approximately six months to complete. It includes safety surfacing for the Paducah Rotary Playground which was constructed by Rotary members and volunteers this past summer. In addition to the grading, drainage, irrigation of the great lawn in the center of the park, this phase also includes the 1/3 mile walking trail, lighting, an expansion of the Community Garden, and a fitness area.
For this park, the City of Paducah has partnered with United Way of Paducah-McCracken County, Lourdes Hospital, Baptist Health, Rotary Club of Paducah, Purchase District Health Department, Healthy Paducah Chapter of the Purchase Connections for Health Coalition, Paducah Independent Schools, and the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.
