WARNER, Robins (41NBC/WMGT)- Warner Robins is the city that believes everyday is Armed Forces Appreciation Day, and now there's a new park to celebrate it.
Keep Warner Robins Beautiful, the city of Warner Robins and the Houston County Board of Commissioners broke ground on Unity Park Friday. The pentagon shaped park at the corner of Corder Road and Leverett Road is lined with flags, lights and flowers. Keep Warner Robins Beautiful Executive Director Debra Jones said the park represents the collaborative effort of the armed forces and the organizations that helped make it possible.
"One of the reason it's Unity Park is because of the partnership between the city, the county and the state," Jones said, "so all of the funding came from these three entities."
Jones said they plan on adding a walkway, benches and more flags in the future. The park is dedicated to Keep Warner Robins Beautiful chairman Jack Steed, who was instrumental in building the park and other beautification projects in the area.
