Auburn City Council approved multi-million dollar Parks and Recreation project

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - After two years of work and planning, the City of Auburn has approved a multi-million-dollar project.

Thirteen projects for Auburn Parks and Recreation are being planned out over the next five years. City officials say it's a total of $40 million coming out of the general budget fund.

The projects will be spread throughout the city and include a community center along with entertainment options and a one of a kind playground just to start.

"Town Creek Park will be an inclusive playground, which will allow children with disabilities to play at the same time as their brothers and sisters who don't have disabilities. They can all play together on the same equipment. It's all geared for that type of recreation activity," says Auburn City Manager Jim Buston.

The amphitheatre is set to be one of the final projects built at Felton Little Park across from the public safety building. City leaders hope Auburn will stand alone when it comes to facilities and amenities for the public to enjoy.
