Objective
Bring to life this wonderful, underutilized 11 acre resource in the heart of Southport. Restore and preserve Southport Park’s natural beauty and provide key enhancements that will increase its attractiveness for community use.

Key Goals

    • Create a park for all ages with benches for sitting, tables for picnicking, and creative play areas constructed of natural materials.
    • Enhance the visibility of the park’s entrance so that it is more welcoming.
    • Revitalize and improve and maintain the walking trails to encourage hiking, exploring and dog walking.
