Work well underway on Liberty Hill Park

County crews have been busy working on clearing and grading at the site of the Liberty Hill Park on Hwy. 26 East. Some $450,000 in SPLOST funds have been earmarked for the project and another $100,000 in grant monies is going into the effort. ’We cut the timber out there and that brought in about $70,000,’ county manager Bob Zellner reported last week. The county bought the land from the federal government for one dollar in 1999 after plans for an FAA facility there were abandoned. Originally, the FAA planned to install at air traffic control radar array on the property but those plans were later abandoned. The county is also working on a deceleration lane for the park entrance. It is a necessity due to the fact the highway frontage is located in a sweeping curve on Hwy. 36 near its intersection with High Falls Park Road. The complex will include fields for baseball, softball, soccer and tennis along with playgrounds, picnic areas, a pavilion, maintenance office and storage/workshop building.
