“Every time I walked through my neighborhood or rode through the city, I would see trash on the ground,” he said.

Bacher used what he saw as inspiration for his Eagle Scout project, creating and installing 27 trash cans throughout Hillview and Pioneer Village.
Before Shepherdsville City Park was the city park, it was home to the Watkins family.
James Watkins said from 1965-1998 his parents, Glenda and Lawrence Watkins, owned the land.

In 1982, the family built a gazebo on the land and today it is still there, but is now known as the pavilion.
