Bunnell to host ribbon cutting for new park
A ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony will be held at the newly built Commissioner Louis L. Jackson Municipal Park at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, according to a news release.
The city has owned the vacant property, located at 308 South Pine St., which was frequently used for loitering and dumping trash. The Bunnell Police Department saw a need to do something productive with the property. As a result, in 2016, the city applied for a Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program grant. The city was awarded a $50,000.00 FRDAP grant in January 2017 to build a park on the property.
Construction of the park began in 2018.
Schedule of events:
- 8:30 a.m. Opening remarks from city officials
- 8:45 a.m. Ribbon cutting ceremony
- 8:50 a.m. Light refreshments
