HAYES, LA (KPLC-TV) - Students from Bell City High's FFA program spent much of their Saturday, as they have for several weeks, building a new park for the community of Hayes.
The Bell City FFA was recently awarded a grant from the Lt. Governor's Learn and Serve Commission to construct the park, which sits behind the Calcasieu Parish Library-Hayes Branch. The FFA teamed up with several community partners for the project, including the Calcasieu Parish Ward Recreation Board.
The third and final phase of the project was Saturday. Students, and a few adult volunteers, installed a swing set, swing safety surround, trash bins and picnic tables. A walking trail, landscaping, and playground equipment for small children were installed in the two earlier phases.
"Everybody's been out here working real hard," said Tye Land, an FFA officer at Bell City High. "It's a real positive thing. A lot of people we don't see doing much are coming out here and they've been helping out a lot."
"This park, it was just an open field and now hopefully all the kids around this area will be happy because now they have something to play with, instead of looking at an empty field," said Bell City High FFA officer Luke Daughenbaugh.
Helping out the project were Stine's Lumber, Heath Fruge Dirt & Gravel, JM Dirt Works, Aucion Trucking, Fontenot Consulting (Mickey Fontenot), Jason and Donna Hayes, Craig Eubanks (of Lake Charles), Marvin Berry (of Jennings), Cajun Grocery, Mike's Cabinet and CAM. The Bell City Athletic Department donated the park's benches.
The park does not have an official name. Several kids were just referring to it as Hayes Park on Saturday.
