In 2016, City Council purchased a 123-acre parcel of land bordered by Blackman Road, Burnt Knob Road, Veterans Parkway, and I-840 in the Blackman area known as the McDonald farm property for development of a West Park. In November 2016, Council authorized moving forward with a park master plan for development of the West Park. Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. and a team of engineering, architectural and design companies will coordinate a community visioning effort, including a kickoff workshop, focus groups, land-owner meetings, and a community meeting ahead of construction. The team will also conduct surveys, base mapping, preliminary concept development, architectural concepts and a final master plan.
