Citizens hope to create community park in Nanih Waiya

From staff and press reports

 

Some citizens of Winston County hope to create another haven for walkers, children and those seeking enjoyment outdoors.

The non-profit group Friends of Nanih Waiya Community Park are aiming to get all interested persons to join together and help create a community park in Nanih Waiya.

Jerry Hemphill, the president of the group, noted that the present members are looking at a possible property for a starting point for the park and could grow from there.

Hemphill noted when the property is gained the group hopes to start with a walking track. After creating a walking track the group could add other amenities such as a playground, basketball court,picnic areas, and much more as planning allows.

The group hopes to raise $75,000 for the project and is working on community grants for the project.

The group is a 501C3 and is in the preliminary stages of the idea and planning. They have setup a Facebook page under Friends of Nanih Waiya Community Park and have received over 463 likes so far.
