  • Watkins family, scout join to repair pavilion in park

    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.

    “We all just call that place home,” he said.

    However, after a flood in 1997, the land was purchased by the city during a Federal Emergency Management Agency buyout to prevent future flooding and to create a city park, Watkins said.

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