Springville celebrates opening of Wayne Bartholomew Park
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.
