SEMINOLE -- After being closed for seven months for renovations, Seminole City Park reopened Saturday.
The city hosted a dedication, which featured family activities, a barbecue and a concert. Some of the park's new amenities include an aluminum picket fence, 15 picnic tables, 11 grills, nine benches, three playground areas, sidewalks, a band shell, a floating fountain and decorative lampposts. The $1.1-million project was funded through Penny for Pinellas, a 1 percent sales tax to pay for infrastructure improvements throughout the county, and a state grant. "We anticipate that this will be a very high-use park," said Seminole City Manager Frank Edmunds. The park is at 7464 Ridge Road. Hours are 7 a.m. to dusk.
