Building Heroes Park

October 23, 2016 | by: Terry Thornton | 0 Comments

Remember that empty lot sitting next to our parking lot? The vision of developing our property is being fulfilled and the empty field is being turned into a park where the children and families of Kelley Drive will have a safe place to play.

On Sept. 24, 2016, Calvary First Assembly of God was joined by the mayor, city leaders and more than 125 volunteers from different organizations and churches from several denominations to begin constructing Heroes Park.

"It's incredible seeing so many people getting involved. Some of it is unheard of," observed Calvary First Assembly of God Pastor Peter Jalilie.

"We're trying to create community. It's been phenomenal," Pastor Peter added.

The first phase of Heroes Park includes construction of a full-size basketball court, a playground and a fence enclosing the playground. It is currently a 20-minute walk to the closest playground for people who live in the Kelley Drive neighborhood. The new playground will serve our community and the fence will ensure childrens' safety.

In the second phase of the project, we plan to buld a shaded picnic area, a walking path that will also complete the missing sidewalk along Kelley Drive and a small amphitheater for outdoor community events, musical performances and youth gatherings.
