Central City Park plan starts with former DMV building demolishing


MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The old DMV building in Central City Park in Macon came crashing down Monday morning.

Macon-Bibb is making room to revamp Central City Park.

It’s part of phase one of a more than $3 million plan.

SPLOST Coordinator Clay Murphey says there will be room for the senior center, a new skate park and new bathrooms.

“Recreation is a huge asset for standard of living,” said Murphey. “Central City Park is our largest park…It’s a great asset next to the river and the river walk. Bicycles and people coming down here and playing and it’s just a great chance for everybody.”

Murphey says they want the park to have less car traffic running through it.

They plan to be done with the changes by Cherry Blossom Festival time next year.
