LIVINGSTON – Plans for a new “splash park” in downtown Livingston – similar to that of Cookeville’s Dogwood Park – will be presented to the public during a meeting scheduled next week.
The latest version of the Central Park master plan shows details for the 2-acre park, which will contain a splash pad, playground, restroom facility, vendor area, parking lot, walking path, decorative lighting, fencing, picnic tables, benches, and stage to be incorporated in the park’s layout. The proposed park will be located between South McHenry and Spring Streets in downtown Livingston.
The public meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, April 27, at the Livingston-Overton County Chamber of Commerce, 222 E. Main St., Livingston, with the city’s downtown revitalization committee.
The committee will present the plans for the park and hear comments from the community and answer any questions the public may have. The meeting is open to the public.
Overton County received a $250,000 Local Park and Recreation Fund (LPRF) grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) last summer to help fund the park.
