In Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) 1, the land for James Brown Park was acquired, and construction was started on preparing this land for a recreation facility. The Stafford Pavilion was also completely renovated. Several other recreation projects were accomplished and planned for future SPLOSTs.
James Brown Park has amenities including:
Shuman Recreation Center
Soccer fields (4)
Softball batting cages
Softball fields (4)
Tennis Courts (2)
All of these facilities were built and maintained with SPLOST funds. Without SPLOST, none of this would be possible.
