Proposed Expansion at Waldron City Park


On Tuesday, March 19, at the Community Coffee event in Waldron, Brandon Nelson City Superintendent and Sherry Johnston spoke about current and future progress at the City of Waldron Forrester-Davis Park.

Community members and leaders gathered at Dalton’s Place to discuss the original park plans as well as plans for expansion. Nelson and Johnston explained the changes to the original plans to the volleyball and basketball courts. The volleyball court had to be relocated due to the elevation of the property.

Johnston said they are in the process of adding lighting around the pavilions as part of the original grant.

With the Blue and You Grant (see related story), the city plans to add a dinosaur dig and add a bank shot basketball game. Both new additions will be unique and exciting.

Plans for the future also includes more playground equipment and parking lot improvements. Johnston said they are working on a grant with the University of Arkansas at Rich Mountain through Tyson foods to put fencing around the park.
