Lineberry Park

Warren G. Lineberry Community Park has been the biggest undertaking of the Partnership for Floyd.  Since the Town of Floyd purchased the land in 2006, we have raised funds, gathered community input, organized projects, and brought volunteers and professionals together to build the beautiful spot we have today.

Below are a few photos that tell the story. Click on the images to enlarge them.

Lineberry Park sign

The sign for the park and the specially designed lights were built and donated by Woody & Jackie Crenshaw and Crenshaw Lighting.

Volunteers from the Partnership and from the community cleared the debris, brush, and brambles from the 2.7 acres before grass could be planted.

Funds to build the park were raised over several years of collections, music fundraisers and silent auctions – all sponsored by PFF. The Town of Floyd also provided some of the funds.
