Upgrading Graceville City Parks

Graceville, Florida officials are in the process of upgrading its two city parks.

The plan would bring specific functions to both the sports complex and Graceville Civic Center.

The sports complex would be the only place for competitive youth sports.

The park at the Civic Center would be designated more for children activities.

Officials are in the process of applying for state grants to get a new concession stand, a new roof and tennis courts.

Chamber of Commerce officials say it's important to have recreational facilities in place when trying to lure potential businesses to northwest Jackson County.
