Good News on Parking!! The City Approved last night to have the parking lot across from the YMCA painted with parking spots we hope to have that done this week, once complete please use the painted parking spots. Also starting today the overflow parking between the two complexes will be open as long as there is good weather, 13-18 Yr olds this would be the best place for you to park. Click the link below to view our parking map.
This past Fall the City added additional parking at the parks. PBA and the City of Petal have also made lots of improvements to our facilities as well. We need everyone's help to make sure we take care of our Parks and Report any Vandalism that we may see.
We also have installed surveillance cameras at all Parks and Parking lots to help us with this as well. If someone is caught doing the wrong thing at the parks they will be prosecuted. Thanks for your help with this. PBA
