Pinson park groundbreaking Sunday, Nov. 30
By Gary Lloyd
PINSON — The city of Pinson will officially break ground on its new city park Sunday, Nov. 30.
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. at 6251 Lane St. in Pinson.
Site work began last month. The current schedule calls for construction to be completed by late spring 2015.
The Pinson City Council in August approved of entering into a contract with Clements Dean Construction to build the new city park for $1.57 million. J.A. Dawson will be paid $277,850 for equipment. The total includes all alternates for the park project.
The park will be located near Center Point Parkway between Sweeny Hollow Road and Glen Brook Road. The park still hasn’t been given a name. Suggestions have included Pinson Park, Children’s Memorial Park, Settlers’ Park and Palmer Park.
The new park will include an event center, playground, splash pad, walking trail, disc golf course and amphitheater.
A map of the park shows there could eventually be a dog park and baseball field.
