Houston County and Warner Robins city officials officially opened Unity Park, at Leverett and Corder roads, at a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday.
The park was dedicated to Jack Steed, chairman of Keep Warner Robins Beautiful, who has pushed beautification projects throughout the county. Steed said the park was named in honor of servicemen and women and the unification of the county and city that make such projects possible.
More features, such as benches and a statue, will be added in the future, according to Warner Robins spokeswoman Ruby Hamb-Holmes. Tommy Stalnaker, county commission chairman, said leftover funds from special purpose local sales taxes used to widen Corder Road paid for the project.
