Savannah park celebrating 10 years of making kids happy


Savannah celebrates Tennessee Street Park’s 10th anniversary this weekend.
“The response since the park opened a decade ago has been overwhelmingly positive. We are blessed to have a park like Tennessee Street Park that offers activities for our citizens of all ages,” city Parks and Recreation Director Corey Jennings said.
He added, “The public enjoys the splash pads in the summer, as well as the playgrounds, the exercise station and walking track, which are open all year.”
Jennings said the park’s beautiful landscaping and it’s focal point, the large water fountain, are also attractions the public enjoys.
The city will be marking the special occasion on Saturday morning, June 15. Opening remarks begin at 10:30, followed by family-fun activities from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Please come out and celebrate with us. There will be free hot dogs and water. We will have live music, face painting, yard games and crafts. The splash pads will also be on,” Jennings urged.
He also said he is grateful for all who have helped maintain the quality of the park at 200 Tennessee St.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has played a part in the upkeep of the park over the years. The park looks just as great as it did when it opened 10 years ago. We take great pride in making sure the park looks great for the public to enjoy,” Jennings said.
