Group Has Big Plans For Gulfport's Westside Park

GULFPORT (WLOX) -- Westside Park is a little more beautiful this weekend, thanks to some busy volunteers.

Ward 2 Councilwoman Libby Roland and members of the Westside Community Association joined together to plant azaleas and shrubs, and hand out free seeds.

Saturday's cleanup is just the beginning for Westside Park, which will eventually include a splash pool for kids, a half mile walking trail and a senior center across the street.

"This is for the people, and the people of this neighborhood have waited for this opportunity to bring back their own neighborhood. This is will be a gathering place for our children, our grandchildren and the homeowners here," said Greg Kergosien with the Westside Community Association.

The group would also like to thank Home Depot and the Island View Casino for helping with Saturday's clean-up event.
