Seth Adams, director of the Macon County Parks & Recreation Department, recently updated the Kiwanis Club of Franklin on progress at the Parker Meadows project.
Initiated through a $500k PARTF grant, the project is nearing completion very close to budget in spite of unexpected design changes.
A grand opening is scheduled for Aug. 25 to highlight the eight ball fields, a soccer field, a one-mile walking track, basketball court, covered shelter as well as three river access points. Many local businesses contributed to the project, including donated score boards and field sponsorships.
With seven baseball tournaments already scheduled this fall, Seth Adams is confident this project will add significant economic impact to Macon County.
