COVINGTON, Ga. — City officials and others joined last week to cut the ribbon at the new Central Park in Covington.

The 162-acre park sits between the city’s East and West wards, connecting several neighborhoods.

As constructed now, it features primitive hiking trails, a paved parking lot and championship-caliber disc golf course.

In the next seven months, a ranger station, restrooms, playground and pavilion are scheduled to be built.

Currently the park may be accessed from Lunsford Circle Southwest and Pennington Street Southwest.
