PETAL, Miss. - Petal's “Friendly Park" received a friendly gift Thursday.
Petal Parks and Recreation worked with Forrest County board of supervisors and City of Petal officials in effort to implement a walking track.
Josh Young, Petal Parks and Recreation assistant director said, "I think it's going to be well-used. For one, YMCA, from the parents that bring their kids down here and takes them on the track. And we also have the parents that come out here with baseball, and they can come out here while their kids are at practice."
The track was completed Thursday, but it will not open until Monday.
