Joe Mumford Park Ribbon Cutting

Mayor Carter Hendricks invites the community to come celebrate the unveiling of Joe Mumford Park at an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, November 22 at 2:00 p.m. The park is located at the corner of Woodmill Road and East 18th Street.

Mayor Hendricks noted, “I am excited to see this park project come to fruition. Thanks to Councilmember Patricia Bell’s persistent leadership and City Council’s support, we are celebrating the relocation and reestablishment of one of Hopkinsville’s most beloved and well known neighborhood parks. We will all be pleased as we see young people, families, and residents from all over our community taking advantage of this awesome opportunity.” Hendricks added, “We’ve also been honored to learn more about the park’s namesake as the Mumford family has truly made their mark in our community and across the globe. I encourage the public to join us for this very special ribbon cutting.”

Joe Mumford Park’s reconstruction was authorized by Hopkinsville City Council as part of the Hoptown-Christian County WINS slate of projects. The $650,000 recreational development measures 3.76 acres and features a playground, basketball court, pavilion, restroom facilities, parking, and lawn areas for gatherings.
