Keeping Marietta beautiful and community oriented.

A park on the west side gets a big donation towards a new project.

Flanders Field currently has a ball field and a playground.

Councilman Tom Vukovic says they have been working for a number of years to try and get a picnic pavilion built there as well.

Now with $8,000 from the Community Development Block Grant and a donation Monday of $3,500 from the Kiwanis Club, it's all coming together.

"It's a great, great story of local service clubs joining together with the city to help population of Marietta, so we are happy to help," says Tom Hushion, president of the Kiwanis Club. "A picnic pavilion, inadvertently there are going to be some kids enjoying the cover and coming down here and for picnics or whatever to watch baseball."

Michael Johnson, PE is donating the pavilion architect design and building permits.

And the Washington County Career Center students are building the pavilion as part of their classroom learning, brought out into the community.

Councilman Vukovic says it's a great thing for everyone to come together for a community cause.
