SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Baseball stadium-seating at Snowden Grove Park, outdoor tennis courts, and indoor batting cages at Greenbrook Park are some of the park improvement projects Southaven plans to tackle in the next three years.

These projects are part of the city’s amended parks and recreation expansion and enhancement plan that carries a price tag of $19 million - $16 million less than the city’s former $35 million plan.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1hzloFP ) the city unveiled the revised parks improvement plan at Tuesday’s Board of Aldermen meeting.

Aldermen unanimously approved a resolution adopting the revised plan that will be paid for with revenue from the city’s 1-percent sales tax - “A Penny for Your Parks” - that was approved by voters in 2011.
