Final designs for Mahr Park unveiled

Posted: Updated:
HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

Hopkins County officials have unveiled the final design plans for the 500-acre Mahr Park.

Features in the new park include several walking trails, a dog park, a Growing Warriors garden, an amphitheater, multi-use barn facilities, kayak launching points, and playground areas.

Officials know the process has taken several years, but they say they're ready to move forward quickly.

"We should be moving dirt within a month, and I'm hoping by mid summer we'll have a gravel road in which means the park is virtually open," Barbie Hunt says.

Officials say the next major step is widening Nebo Road which will serve as the entrance to the park.
