Big Plans for Banty Jones Park


Thanks to grant money, Banty Jones Park in East Rome will be totally transformed soon with a trail, pavilions, stage, two playgrounds and a splash pad! 
- The state granted Rome $2.2 million from state American Rescue Plan Act funding (ARPA) 
- The grant means that project plans can be completed in one funding recycle rather than being built out over multiple phases.  
- Community Development Director Bekki Fox explains it all in this video.
