Yesterday, Mecklenburg County held a ceremony to commemorate the ground breaking for First Ward Park. The Park is a much needed amenity for our neighborhood and the event was well attended.

Bob Szymkiewicz, a long time resident and founder of the First Ward Community Fund, was a speaker at the event. Bob took time to recognize and thank several other residents for their efforts to make First Ward a great neighborhood. Vinton Simpson, Smokey Oats, Mark Peres, Will Haden and Karie Great deserve shout-outs for the contributions they make to First Ward.

The park promises to be a valuable asset for First Ward.
