New Soccer Park: Everette C. "Ebb" Gantt Park


Construction on Gantt Park is not fully complete even though the bermuda grass is growing . We expect to play soccer there the spring of 2015. The park amenities include two full size soccer fields, 1/2 mile paved walking trail, playground, picnic shelter, and restrooms.
