Kynette Park in Forsyth is getting the attention it needs to bring one of the oldest parts of the city back to life.
With more than $80,000 from grant and city money, the rehab project began in late 2011. A new clubhouse, and new pavilion are two features already off the ground. The area surrounding the park is getting cleaned up as well.
"Within the last year we've almost completely stopped the hand sale of crack cocaine and marijuana in the area," says Chief Keith Corley, Forsyth Police.
There's still one more issue that surrounds this community. Dilapidated homes line the streets near the park.
"There's several of those homes over there that we're working with homeowners that they're either going to have to fix them or we going to have to ask to take them down," says city administrator, Thomas White.
White hopes the homes will be taken care of by the homeowners.
The construction in the park is set to wrap up by June. He says, the new club house will be a multi-functional hall for both recreation and public use.
