Central City Park's new Skate Park dubbed 'the coolest place in Macon'

Whether you're a skater or not, you've got to admit our new skate park is pretty cool. Commissioner Larry Schlesinger says he doesn't plan on doing an kickflips off the rails anytime soon, but he did declare this park to be "the coolest place in Macon."

On Friday, March 17, our leaders, community partners, the Parks & Recreation Department and a big group of skating enthusiasts came to celebrate our new Skate Park. The park is part of a $3.7 million upgrade to Central City. Those upgrades also included new sidewalks, pavilions, multi-purpose fields, and infrastructure upgrades.

Spring brings with it flowers and tweeting birds...and pollen. But it also brings an innate desire to clean our homes after a long winter stuck inside. That's why April is always the month for Good Life Organizing's Spring Fling, a 30 day decluttering challenge. And it starts on April 1.

Every day in April we will be sorting, discarding and flinging items and ideas from a wide variety of areas of our home and lives.  You can pick and choose which flings you would like do. You can do them every day or do them at your own pace. It’s all up to you! 

Tune into the Good Life Organizing Facebook page or the Good Life Organizing blog daily and invite a friend to do it with you. You can even get the daily flings in your email box every day by signing up here.

Now let's go flinging!
