MONTGOMERY, AL | December 7, 2017 – New Park, a Jim Wilson & Associates Development is please to announce construction has begun on the community clubhouse in New Park located on Park Crossing between Taylor Road and Ray Thorington Road. The clubhouse will be named “The Gatehouse” and will be a gathering place for residents in New Park and will be located adjacent to the pool at the entry way into the community. The Gatehouse will consist of a heated and cooled indoor space as well as a spacious outdoor covered patio with a fire place. In addition to the clubhouse, the developer will be adding some additional amenities to New Park. The community playground, “Playscape” will be located adjacent to The Gatehouse and a small splash pad will be added to the existing pool area. In addition to the playground and small splash pad, a walking trail is being enhanced around Chastain Lake in the center of the community. “We are excited to be adding these new amenities and family friendly attractions to New Park”, says Anita Carter, Vice President, Jim Wilson & Associates. The completion of The Gatehouse and additional amenities is projected for May 2018.
Ivey awarded a state grant to the Redstone project because of the base’s $100 million annual economic impact on Alabama and the daily traffic congestion backing up from the gate to Interstate 565.
“Over 40,000 folks enter Gate 9 every day and, before its relocation, it was a huge traffic congestion, as you know,” Ivey said. “It’s been going on for some time, and it was just an impediment to good progress.”
