Fondren Park continues to take shape and the grand opening celebration will be one step closer after a Friday meeting. Committee members will meet at 6:30pm to discuss more details about the planned April 9 celebration. The day’s activities are said to include music, food, a ribbon cutting, games, and more.

ADA accessible benches and tables have been installed, the climbing net is awaiting drier conditions, and the pavilion has been completed. Lighting is up and a walking track will receive a rubberized surface in the coming weeks.
