HEFLIN, Ala. (AP) -- The state conservation agency is moving along with plans to promote archery in Alabama through a string of community parks.

The city of Heflin has become the sixth town to open a recreational facility dedicated to archery. It's near Cleburne County High School in east Alabama and has ranges to fit both adults and youth.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources says other, similar parks are located in Athens, Cullman, Decatur, Demopolis and Dothan. And three more are being built in Lincoln, Ozark and Tuscaloosa.

The Heflin park is part of the agency's efforts to increase participation in archery. It will be open year-round for target practice, tournaments and outdoor educational programs.

The archery park is a partnership between the city, the state and the Archery Trade Association.
