Dedication Ceremony Held for Lake Carroll Park

A dedication ceremony for the newly expanded Lake Carroll Park was held Tuesday, April 23. 

Mayor Betty Cason, Councilmembers Jacqulene Bridges, Stacie Gibbs, Bob Uglum, Brett Ledbetter, City Manager David Brooks, city staff and many community members were present.

Plaques in the park will tell the stories of the development of Lake Carroll in the late 1940s and the new park, begun in 2021. A new flagpole for the park was donated by Councilmember Brett Ledbetter – who spearheaded the park’s design and development – and the Ledbetter family in memory of his parents and brother.   

The Lake Carroll Park area was formerly a part of Lakeshore Park and consisted of a few picnic tables and benches near the public boat ramp and docks. The new park boasts new boat ramps, boardwalks, pavilions and picnic areas. The second phase of this park was completed in early 2024.
