The city of Rincon broke ground on its long-awaited Patriot’s Park on Wednesday.
“This park project’s been being worked on for two or three years by the city,” said Tim Baumgartner of EMC Engineering, the city’s engineer. “
Once it’s done, there will be four lighted tennis courts, a parking area and two soccer fields that can be multi-use fields. Baumgartner also said there is room for future uses such as a pavilion, concession stand and restrooms.
The first phase of the project will be the tennis courts, soccer field and parking lot.
“It’ll be a good addition to the community,” Baumgartner said. “I know in the past they worked some with the (YMCA) on this, so there’s going to be a nice recreation area for the city.”
