City of Zachary breaks ground on new park

BREC officials held a public park groundbreaking in Zachary on Friday.

City leaders broke ground on the construction of the Zachary Community Park, which will hold playground equipment, seating areas, and a series of fitness stations.

"This is a fantastic facility out here, and we look for many other projects to come out and continue to grow and better the city," says Zachary Mayor David Amrhein. "Any time you help out kids, you're definitely doing a plus in my mind."

Officials say that BREC will start construction on a new splash pad when it gets approved by the DHH.
