The city of Tuscaloosa is seeking public input on how to improve one of its biggest and most varied parks - Bowers Park off James I. Harrison Parkway.

The 170-acre Bowers Park is home to a beautiful, winding 18-hole disc golf course, the Jerry Belk Activity Center, a large pool and waterslide, tennis courts and an 8-field baseball and softball complex.

As part of the Elevate Tuscaloosa initiative funded by new sales tax dollars, the city is looking to improve Bowers and will present its early plans to do so on December 13th, next Wednesday.

The come-and-go meeting at the Belk Activity Center lasts from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. and will feature the preliminary concepts of upgrades to Bowers, and residents will be able to provide feedback on what they see.

For updates on the project, stay connected to the Tuscaloosa Thread and elevatetuscaloosa.com, where the city shares information on all projects funded by the initiative.
