Mobile City Councilman Levon Manzie announced today a major renovation is coming soon to Rickarby Park.

These projects are the latest in an initiative to improve and update the parks and recreation centers across District 2.

“I’m thrilled that we are able to bring these major upgrades to Rickarby Park,” Manzie said in a statement. “Providing quality parks and recreational facilities is key for healthy neighborhoods because they are the hearts of our communities.”

The upgrades coming to Rickarby Park include: The installation of new in-ground foundation pre-manufactured baseball benches in place of the current ones, installation of a new basketball court along with new goals and benches, replacing damaged sections of sidewalk near the recreation center building, complete painting of the interior and exterior of the recreation center building and the installation of new trash receptacles and security measures.
