Augusta is taking part with plans to give a facelift to Dyess Park.
The Augusta Housing and Community Development Department revealed its 6 phase renovation plan for the park Wednesday. Residents and Augusta Commissioners alike came out to see the foundation the city's building onto.
Deputy City Administrator and Interim Augusta Parks and Recreation Department director, William Shanahan explains, “when you get parks like this it's kind of like when you drop a stone into a puddle of water and you get that rippling affect. Most of the improvements that we've done throughout the city is strategically located so you can build on them.”
Shanahan says there's no set opening day for the new facilities and building them will depend on the city's finances.
