Johnson Park Project Underway in Andalusia
From the CBS 8 South Alabama Newsroom-- CBS 8 News is covering Andalusia where a major renovation project is underway.
Johnson Park, one of the main venues for recreactional baseball and softball in Andalusia, is getting a whole new look. With additional fields, new fencing, lighting, press boxes and more, it is being completely over hauled.
Mayor, Earl Johnson, says the park is used by hundreds of children throughout Covington County.
Parents say this has been a need in the area for some time.
"Last season when we played, at the Kiwanis Center, we had to do games almost every night of the week at 5:30 and 7:00 so we had some very late nights because there just weren't enough fields to go around for all the teams," says Johnny Brewer.
Construction is expected to be complete by the end March.
