The City of Batesville and Margaret Mary Health (MMH) have broken ground for a new park on the east side of Six Pine Ranch Rd.
MMH donated the three-acre parcel of land to the city for development of the park which is projected to open in 2019.
The park will feature a walking trail, playground sites, picnic tables and benches, an observation deck, and parking areas. The trail will connect to the existing walking path behind the Margaret Mary Outpatient & Cancer Center.
The city has contracted with HWC Engineering to plan and design the park. Construction is expected to begin early next year.
