Webb Park Grant

Residents in one Houston County community will soon have a new place to play.

Webb has received a $50,000 state grant to develop a recreational park.

The town's existing park has drainage problems and sub-standard lighting.

The new facility will be built near the intersection of Otis Buie and old Webb Roads.

Town officials have committed at least $100,000 in additional funds to the project.

The park will have four baseball and softball fields and a basketball court as well as lighting and fencing.
