MaconBibbTV features major upgrades to park in Macon-Bibb

Thanks to the work and resources of multiple people and groups, Daisy Park on Forsyth Street has received a major overhaul to make it a more active space for the neighborhood, visitors, and people needing a place to relax. Among the upgrades are a water feature, a brand-new basketball court, spruced-up green space, picnic tables, and a bench made from repurposed cement. Nearly a dozen organizations pitched in to make Daisy Park what it is today.

came together to turn on the water feature and celebrate this major project.
