Part of this vision that will be funded by the bond is to provide upgrades and professional maintenance for the existing parks in Starkville.
There are lots of proposed items included in the vision including
>> Renovation of McKee Park to include an enhanced walking track, additional and improved outdoor basketball and tennis courts, update/repair existing pavilions and restrooms, and the addition of a dog park.
>> Bringing existing park facilities up to current safety guidelines including removal/replacement of broken or damaged play components, appropriate safety surfacing and fall zones, and appropriate number of accessible play components.
>>Maintenance including remove/repair/replace broken benches, trash receptacles, tables, and grills; regular trash pickup; and create/enhance landscape areas.
