HERNANDO, Miss. (AP) - DeSoto County is expected to authorize a new 40 acre park by the end of next year to serve the growing Lewisburg community on the county’s east side.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1wxzukz ) Ray Laughter, a member of the DeSoto Recreational District Commission, and two other commissioners, were named at the parks panel’s Tuesday session to assess needs and amenities for the county’s undeveloped Lewisburg site, and gather input at public meetings.

Laughter says he’s confident the group will have a park proposal for the Board of Supervisors to consider by the end of 2015.

Larry Jarrett, parks and greenways director for the district, said some initial park concepts have been done, including a walking trail and outdoor classroom.
