Town Park Improvements Almost Complete

The new city park is taking shape. When finished there will be a walking track, picnic pavilions, several play areas and sports courts.

The town park has existed for many years.  There were one or two playsets and the area had grown up in trees and bushes. The expansion of the park began about a year ago and should be complete in the near future. 

Mayor Dr. Johnny Cox held an official groundbreaking several months ago (see issue of JULY 17, 2019). However the work of clearing the undergrowth and some of the trees has been going on for about a year. 

Plans call for 24 picnic sites at the park. Each will have a pavilion with table and bar-b-que grill. Anyone wishing to use those will be able to make reservations for one or more sites. 

Also under construction are basketball courts and a field for soccer or football. The town has also made improvements to the existing baseball and softball fields. Additional restroom facilities and more parking spaces are also in the works for the new park.
