CROSSVILLE LANDMARK BEGINS TO COME DOWN

Comments are Off

The destruction of what many Crossville residents say is a “landmark” has begun. Garrison Recreation Park has been around for several decades, and although plans do not include the destruction of the baseball field, the park’s grandstand and bleachers are coming down. The grandstand and bleachers were built after the baseball field had been there for several years, and used by semi-pro team The Crossville Blues. Down through the years, the grandstand had fallen into disrepair and had never been brought up to ADA standards. Many say that parts of the facility are unsafe. Earlier this year the Crossville City Council approved plans to redevelop the park with the addition of a splash pad, walking trail and upgrades of the park’s basketball courts and public bathrooms. Many in the community have shown dismay over the project, particularly in social media, and believe that the park should be kept as a remembrance of past-times. Others say that the additions will afford children on the southern side of the city a place to play that is closer than Centennial Park. No timetable has been set for construction to begin.
