New amenities are coming and a family-favorite event has been rescheduled for Murphy residents to enjoy.
Murphy residents are invited to a pair of ribbon cutting events that will officially unveil improvements to two parks as part of the 2017 capital improvement project bond program.
The mayor, city council, members of the Parks Board, contracting partners and city staff will participate in the ceremonies, which will be held Saturday, Feb. 19 at Travis Farms Park and North Hill Park.
The ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. at Travis Farm Park, located at 502 Skyline Drive. The improvements at the park include a concrete trail addition along the perimeter which is suitable for walking, running and biking. A small playground catering to young children was also added. One distinctive feature of the playground is a free-standing zipline.
Other items included in the park’s renovation are irrigation, landscaping and surface leveling.
After the ribbon cutting, officials will travel to North Hill Park, located at 1302 Rodeo Drive, for the 10 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony.
