The splash pad and playground will be located beyond the parking area.The proposed walking trail will circle the splash pad and playground area. Trees will provide shade along some parts of the trail.Ramage said the park would not be supervised except by the Brundidge Police Department. There will be no lighting at the park and it will be closed at night.Those who attended the public hearing viewed slides of the slash pad and park that is under construction in Ozark. Estees said the Brundidge splash pad and restroom facilities would be similar to those in the Ozark park. The estimated cost of the splash pad alone is $115,000. The city currently has two parks, Galloway Park and Ramage Park. Galloway Park, on the north side of town, has a ball field, basketball court, playground and community building.Ramage Park on the south side of town has ball fields, a playground area, restroom facilities and a concession stand. The city is in the process of remediating a small park that was closed several years ago. The remediation plans include a walking trail, gazebo and picnic tables at Ramage Park.

The deadline to submit the grant is July 1, 2016. The City of Brundidge has a private investor who could funnel $100,000 or more into the half-million dollar proposed splash pad and recreation park.The Brundidge City Council conducted a public hearing Friday morning at City Hall to give residents an opportunity to learn more about the proposed park and also the proposed grant to assist in funding the park. The parks would be built on city property on Veterans Boulevard and, if funded, would include a splash pad, a playground, walking trail, restroom facilities, a picnic table and a bench.last_img read more
