It was a perfect September afternoon to dedicate the 53-acre Denny Dobbs Park, located off Ga. Highway 212, across from Oak Hill Elementary School. Here, the man of the hour Denny Dobbs, left, chats with Newton County Commissioner Mort Ewing and Georgia House Rep. Bob Lane, R-Statesboro, who was the guest speaker for the event. The park's central feature is a playground and pavilion that holds up to 175 people. Other amenities include two outdoor basketball courts, a LifeTrail, which is a series of outdoor exercise/physical activity stations, NEOS, an electronic game in which players race the clock to slap fast-moving blinking lights, trails, park benches and restroom facilities. The first event will take place today when Prospect United Methodist Church hosts a festival which is free and open to the public.
