MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

The City of Moss Point took steps Wednesday to further enhance its reputation as a nature based tourism destination. Mayor Billy Broomfield helped erect signs at two soon to be developed nature parks in the river city. 

The first is "Saw Mill Landing" which sits on a four acre piece of waterfront property near the base of the Highway 613 bridge. Located across from the Riverfront Welcome Center, it will include nature trails and a pavilion. 

North of I-10, the other project is "Saracennia Park", a 13 acre site next to a city fire station. It adjoins a small tributary of the Pascagoula River. 

"It's a great day in the City of Moss Point," said Mayor Broomfield, acknowledging the strides made by his city in offering more nature tourism opportunities.

Mayor Broomfield was joined by Judy Steckler, executive director of the Land Trust. That group helped secure the property for the parks.
