Milton begins renovation of Lucille Johnson Park
MILTON — The city began renovation of Lucille Johnson Park Nov. 9. The park is located on Mary Street in downtown Milton.
Improvements to the park will include a new basketball court, park lighting, landscaping and repairs to playground equipment.
The budget for the renovations is $100,000, which is funded by a $50,000 grant from the Florida Recreational Development Assistance Program and $50,000 in city Local Option Sales Tax funding.
For safety reasons, the construction area will remain closed until the renovations are complete. The remainder of the park is open to the public. However, city officials request that everyone be cautious while in the park.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year. For more information, contact the Public Works or Parks & Recreation Department at 850-983-5400.
