First phase features of the park

  • Pavilion
  • Playground
  • Splash Pad
  • Walking Trail
  • Concrete Pad for bands
  • Basketball Courts

Second phase features of the park

  • Additional Trails
  • Multipurpose Field
  • Another Pad for Bands

“We’re not done helping revitalize the neighborhoods around Log Cabin Drive and providing them recreational opportunities and ways to stay safe,” said Al Tillman, District 9 Commissioner. “This has been a long time coming, and I’m proud that it’s been our consolidated government that has delivered on so many promises made over the years.”

Macon-Bibb allocated the funds through the SPLOST tax and Blight Remediation Program.
