Progress continues to be made at Van Buren’s first county-owned park as the project continues moving forward.

Construction crews are continuing to make progress in the construction of Van Buren County’s first county-owned park. Construction continues on the new amphitheater, and concrete has been poured for the new light poles going around the park.

The new park is being constructed in the historic Burritt College campus area. Van Buren’s newest park will feature walking trails, gazebos, an amphitheater, and, eventually, an information center.

This project is being made possible by several grants received by Van Buren County, including a $900,000 state grant. Additionally, in 2016, Van Buren County received a $440,000 grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation that has helped make this new park possible.
