The city of Warner Robins continues its effort to bring new parks and recreation to residents.
Monday evening, Mayor and Council were presented with plans for a park in a space the city has owned for years.
"It's needed here in the community, it's way overdue," said Jim Taylor, who made the presentation.
City leaders agreed with Taylor, and want to move forward with his idea.
The city plans on naming the facility Wellston Park. All 35 acres that sit on Olympia Drive will be developed into walking trails, a dog park, and an amphitheater.
"Now's the time. The fire's hot, let's push it through," said Councilman Keith Lauritsen.
He says a recent recreation study shows that residents demand more passive parks, like Wellston Trail in Warner Robins.
