Parks and Rec.

Gadsden County is trying to spruce up several parks in the area, making it a nice recreational place for families. A new spinning wheel and slide are the perfect tools for children to enjoy themselves.

Officials will apply for grant funding to install state of the art equipment in all of the facilities.

Gadsden County officials are taking a closer look at all the parks in the rural community to revitalize them for area residents.

"Parks are important to communities, it's a community zone for kids to come after-school it's a greeting place, and friends can be lifelong friends,” says Charles Chapman.

Officials are now revitalizing Saint Johns and Robertsville Parks. Right now they're awaiting word on grant funding to spruce up other parks.
