This is AWESOME!!!! We have great leaders in our city who are willing and capable of moving our city forward. How wonderful to have our very own park and not have to "rent" from the county each time we have an event. Thank you Mayor Judy Johnson, Council Members Katie Hart Smith, Tony Powell, P.K. Martin and Marie Beiser. Jan H,. Overton
