Cookeville’s West End Park will receive two new basketball goals with a resurfaced court.
Leisure Services Director Rick Woods said the city tries to keep the park updated every five years for the families at the West End communities.
“I can not tell you the actually numbers of people that use it, but is is very important for that community,” Woods said. “The park is utilized by that community and by outside communities as well.”
Woods said the goals will be installed this week with repaving following soon after. After completion, the fence around the court will be replaced. Other renovations being explored by the city include repurposing the volleyball court and adding additional parking.
“It has been in the past five years that we have built a new shelter and a restroom facility out there,” Woods said. “We put new fencing around the open field and some benches were put in there.”
The project will be completed by the end of the summer. Woods said the park will continue to stay open to the community through the renovations.
