New park for New­born

The Covington News - - The second front -

Res­i­dents of New­born can come out and en­joy a new park, New Town Park. Built this past June, Tom Kreiger, Keith Hunts and Larry Cle­ment were be­hind the con­struc­tion of the park. Sur­round­ing the park is a pavilion, which is also avail­able for reser­va­tion of lo­cal events, par­ties, etc., and town of­fi­cials are look­ing to put up a fence and other fa­cil­i­ties in the park to bet­ter ac­com­mo­date guests. The park re­cently hosted its first event for the Cov­ing­ton Cen­tury, cy­clists from New­ton, Wal­ton and Mor­gan coun­ties, who stopped through the park for wa­ter breaks dur­ing their 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. race for the “Trails on Tails” cause. On Oct. 6, Beryl Budd, re­tiree of the Ge­or­gia Forestry Com­mis­sion, will have a re­tire­ment party at the park in honor of his ded­i­ca­tion for New­ton County, and the community forestry he has been a part of for the past 27 years. The park is not yet com­pleted, but for now, res­i­dents and chil­dren can en­joy the swing sets, grills, and the walk­ing path avail­able for use. For more in­for­ma­tion, contact Lisa Rowe, New­born City Hall clerk at (770) 787-1660 or visit new­
