Thank you to everyone that joined us for a southern district meeting at Floyd County Parks newest park, Kevin Hammersmith Memorial Park! Park Superintendent Roger Jeffers discussed how the park came about, partnerships, fundraising, and construction and completion of a nearly 7 year planned playground project. Meagan Herber from Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority shared the basics of the CreatINg Places program (how it works, how anyone interested can get started, etc.)
Kevin Hammersmith Memorial Park is the newest park in Floyd County that comes with 35.5 acres. KHMP is home to their largest shelter that can be split in half and holds 11 tables on each side. Major features inside the park are: Romeo Langford Basketball Court (received the "Court of the Month" from Nova Sports in July 2019), Elliott and Sue Phillips Pavilion (a basketball court that is covered by a roof and has lighting), KFC Amphitheater, and is the Headquarters of Floyd County Parks and Recreation Maintenance Building. It also currently has 1 playground and 3/4 a mile walking trail. Come May 2022 there will be a splash pad and an all inclusive playground.
