Volunteers Needed for Gainesboro City Park Demolition

/ The Upper Cumberland's News Leader

Jackson County and Gainesboro are looking for volunteers to help clear out floors and paneling Saturday in the City Park.

Jackson County Parks and Recreation Chairman Jordan Hunter said the demolition work will be inside an old building owned by Gainesboro. Hunter said the community help is needed so the area is cleaned out when Twin Lakes starts installing WiFi next week.

“We’ll be here at 9:00 AM were hoping to get it all done on Saturday,” Hunter said. “It is a sizable building and the downstairs needs some cleanup as well, but I’m hoping we can get it all done on Saturday as long as the dumpsters big enough.”

Hunter said if you plan on volunteering, bring sledgehammers, construction hammers and work gloves. This will be a final step to completing phase one of this project.

“Phase one is almost complete with the playground equipment going in,” Hunter said.

However, work on the park itself is ramping up this month. Hunter said City Park should be ready by the end of September.

“We still have the pavilion to go in which should be in the next couple weeks,” Hunter said. “The concrete and the sidewalks are going in next week, and then once the concrete, sidewalks, and pavilion are in they’re going to put the border timbers around and the mulch and then the park will be completed.”

This building being cleared out will become a fitness center in July of 2021. A Project Diabetes Grant is Funding the park project.
