A walking park, childrens swings and gazebos were added. A new basketball court was built after the last one was destroyed by parking damage.
According to the Rev. William Jenkins, this is the first time the church has had a tournament in about 15 years, and the event is being held to bring people back into the park.
“I¿want to express gratitude to the city for the work they’ve done, and Centre”¿he said. “I don’t think anyone has ever said thank you.”
Teams have come from all over central Kentucky, including Danville, Frankfort, Richmond and Lebanon to participate.
