Welcome to Phoenix Park!
Its grand opening arrived Friday with colorful balloons, speakers, refreshments and the installation of locally manufactured patio furniture.
Originally the idea of George Needham, who drew plans for beautification of the lot once occupied by the Phoenix Building, a modified version designed and sponsored by individuals, businesses and the city of Selma gives people a place to relax and picnic on Water Avenue. It also affords a better view across the street from the St. James Hotel. The patio furniture and umbrellas were donated by Plantation Patterns, a company located at Craig Industrial Park.
