Work To Begin Soon At Baxter Seminary Park

It won’t be much longer until work begins on the new Baxter Seminary Park.

That according to Mayor John Martin.

“We had a meeting last week and we are getting ready to do the sidewalks on the initial part of our park,” Martin said. “We’re just waiting to hear back from the people that are going to be doing the concrete work.”

Martin said the park will also have a new amphitheater thanks to a $75,000 Tennessee Department of Tourism.

“We’re still waiting on the architect to finalize that and put it out for bids,” Martin said.

Martin said the new park will also include a new arch and three different historic venues that branch off from the sidewalks.

“Once we get all this done it’s really going to be good for different events,” Martin said. “We are really looking forward to getting it finalized.”

Donations have also been received for new benches, lamposts and stone pillars.
