Celebrate Colony Park’s improvements

Friday, March 6, 2020 by Tai Moses

If you’re curious to see what a state-of-the-art park looks like, get on down to the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Colony Park District Park at 10 a.m. this Saturday. According to a parks department news release, the improvements include “a 10,000-square-foot play area with elements of nature-based play, two picnic pavilions with large BBQ grills, a multi-purpose athletic field with LED lighting, a youth baseball field with covered dugouts and bleachers, a walking trail with three fitness stations, 3,500 feet of pedestrian walkways, and a 130-foot pedestrian bridge linking the Colony Park community to the park facilities and Overton Elementary School. Park visitors can also enjoy a 2,400-square-foot mural, ‘Peace and Harmony,’ painted by Tyson Davis, artwork commissioned by the Art in Public Places Program from the Economic Development Department.” Whew! We can’t add much more to that, except to say that luminaries from local and state organizations will be present to say a few words at the ribbon-cutting. Before the event, from 8:30-10 a.m., there will be opportunities for volunteers to pitch in for It’s My Park Day, supporting the community by “picking up trash, mulching trees, and beautifying the community trail.” Saturday, March 7, Colony Park District Park, 7201 Colony Loop Drive.
