Excerpt from the Tidewater News press release. Read the full article here.

 

'The effort to beautify and revitalize downtown Franklin has just been made more than a little easier, thanks to a major contribution from International Paper. The company has announced it has completed the donation of 15 acres of land, which will enable the development of a park alongside the Blackwater River and also bordered by Second Avenue and the bridge...about six acres of the property will be used to develop a recreational space that will offer a Riverwalk Trail system, fishing area, kayak/canoe/paddleboard launch, outdoor classroom for nature observation, greenspace offering unstructured play, botanical arboretum and a family picnic pavilion.The project includes an effort to protect water quality with permanent vegetated riparian buffers along the river and wetlands.' We are excited for this wonderful community addition to Downtown Franklin!
