Springville cel­e­brates open­ing of Wayne Bartholomew Park

Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - Chris Hash

It ap­pears that Springville City did just that. The Wayne Bartholomew is a beau­ti­ful fa­cil­ity com­plete with a pond for swimming, fish­ing and raft­ing; a nice beach area; con­ces­sions; vol­ley­ball nets; pavil­ions; trails and 100-plus park­ing spots. It’s not fin­ished yet, ei­ther; the area will con­tinue to be de­vel­oped as Springville City has the funds, said Mayor Wil­ford W. Clyde. The park’s trails will even­tu­ally con­nect with the Hob­ble Creek trail sys­tem and the Maple­ton Lat­eral Canal Trail. Plans for more pavil­ions and three play­grounds are also in the works.

“Isn’t this ex­cit­ing?” said Mayor Clyde, thank­ing those whose hard work has made the Wayne Bartholomew Park pos­si­ble. “And we’re not fin­ished yet - we have a lot of re­ally neat plans. Things like this make our com­mu­nity bet­ter. They help make it a great place to raise fam­i­lies and just en­joy your­self.”

“This park is of­fi­cially open!” Mayor Clyde an­nounced as the rib­bon fell to the ground. From the size of the crowd and the noise of their roar at this an­nounce­ment, it ap­pears that the Wayne Bartholomew Park will be well used and well loved.
