Parks and Recreation Projects Planned For 2012-2013:
The City is begining it's plan to install WIFI in its parks. Please click this link to keep updated on the progress.
The City has purchased a tract of land on Overton Road at Oakdale Road to be used as a future park. The property is 4.7 acres and one side fronts the Cahaba River. It has a healthy growth of large hardwood trees and was purchased from Brookwood Baptist Church. The City has engaged Nimrod Long & Associates to design a Master Plan for this property and its use as a public park. The City will seek input from residents on its design and improvements.
We will be adding a shingle roof to the restroom at Overton Park this year.
We resurfaced the entrance road for the baseball area of the Sports Complex.
