It's a blending of park, natural setting

Thursday, May 21, 2009 10:00 am
Area children celebrated the completion of Phase 1 of Buckner Park on Bass Road at Interstate 69 on Wednesday.

The work included the addition of an open-air pavilion, two playgrounds and a splash pad. Also present were Mayor Tom Henry, Earth Source Vice President Dan Ernst, the Buckner Park Development Committee and Parks and Recreation Director Al Moll.

Moll said in a news release, “We have a lot of dedicated people working with us and I think they've done an excellent job blending the pavilion and playground with the natural landscape.” The master plan for the 200-acre park's development has four phases that will include a wetland, more trails, a large pond for fishing and ice skating, a sledding hill and a learning center. The park, which opened to the public in 2004, will have more of a state park feel with the addition of much more natural space, according to the release. Moll suggested those supporting the park have naming opportunities. For information, call 427-6024.
