UPDATE: Starkville residents asked to name city park

STARKVILLE — The Starkville Park Commission is calling on residents to help name a popular city park.

The park is located just off Highway 12. It consists of a playground and pavilion area.

Plans are in the works to complete fencing around the park, upgrade the flower bed and add a sign with the park’s new name, whatever it may be. Long-range plans include a water fountain and restrooms.

The Park Commission is allowing residents to pick from three name choices or to submit their own ideas. The choices are Green Oaks Community Park, People’s Park and Green Park.

The winner of the “Name That Park” contest will receive $100.

All entries are due by Sept. 24. A winner will be selected and notified on Sept. 25.
