Alexandria-Park Improvements

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - The Alexandria City Council has voted to move forward on improvements to Frank O. Hunter Park.

On Tuesday, the council introduced an ordinance that will allow Mayor Jacques M. Roy to accept a low bid for improvements to the park.

Lose & Associates, a consultant hired to study the city's parks, recommended in August 2009 that the city invest $60 million in its parks and recreation systems.

Frank O. Hunter Park, slated for about $2 million in improvements, is one of the largest and oldest parks in the city.

The first phase of the park's expansion will include a football facility with a tailgating area, press and ticket box, concession stands and seating for nearly 700 people.
