The land for the park was purchased by the city from the Reverend Bernice Hicks, the founder of Jeffersonville based Christ Gospel Church, in the mid-2000’s. The property was purchased during the Rob Waiz administration, to give flood water from the surrounding neighborhoods a place to go. A spillway and levy system was built on the city land to provide flood waters with a controlled release.
