Beautiful weather was the backdrop for the Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting. The ribbon-cutting was for Eastside Park on Scottsville Road. During the ceremony, Judge Executive Mike Buchanon dedicated the park to Phil Moore of Warren County Parks and Rec.

The park will now be called Phil Moore Park. Moore says, "It's not only my name, but a culmination of a lot of individuals that have been involved in this park system for over 30 years as volunteers, dedicated staff members, and people even in fiscal court that accomplished our mission and task. And I was just captain of the ship."

The park has softball and baseball fields, basketball courts, a volleyball court and walking track. There is also a Soapbox Derby Raceway.

The park is built on land that was once inhabited by the Plum Springs Native Americans. Archeologists have found artifacts, and park officials plan to have a mural painted so kids and visitors can see what the land looked like before it became a park.
