Park Re-opens With New Boardwalk
A wild space and public place in Gainesville now has a fresh face, thanks to some new, pressure-treated lumber.
Sporting a new boardwalk, the Alfred A. Ring Park has re-opened.
The 20 acre park in Northwest Gainesville was temporarily closed while workers installed the boardwalk.
City officials say the original boardwalk -- built 20 years ago -- was falling apart.
The project cost a little over $400 thousand dollars, which officials say was four percent under budget.
The project was completed a month ahead of schedule.
The project was paid for by the city's Wild Spaces-Public Places half-cent sales tax.
