Ground has officially been broken on the biggest municipal project in the young history of the city of Pinson.
Mayor Hoyt Sanders, members of the Pinson City Council and executives with Clements Dean contractors and Goodyn Mills Cawood architects turned the ceremonial gold shovels of dirt in a ceremony Sunday afternoon.
When completed, the new park will feature a splash pad, amphitheater, disc golf course, walking trail, playground and meeting house. The overall cost will be in the neighborhood of $1.5 million.
Sanders said the park is scheduled to be completed by the end of April 2015, barring any delays caused by weather.
