LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- You're invited to the grand opening of Victory Park Saturday morning.

For decades, the park was a special place for West Louisville, but over the years it fell into disrepair and became a hot spot for violence

After years of planning, thousands of dollars and thousands of hours of work the renovation is complete.

The celebration for Victory Park starts at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The park is located at 1051 South 23rd Street.
