Louisville’s popular skatepark will be closed several days this week for maintenance. 

Metro Parks spokesperson Jason Cissell says the park is shut down at least once a year to allow crews to do the work.

“Painting and cleaning as well as removal of graffiti and and repair of vandalism, which unfortunately is always a concern with the skatepark,”  Cissell said.                            skatepark
