Inclusive Park

The City of Conway is planning a soft opening for its inclusive park Wednesday, and Conway officials expect to hold a grand opening celebration soon. The park, now officially named the Lady Bug Park, is located at the Conway Recreation Center by the picnic shelter. City council unanimously approved the name at its meeting Monday night in response to a Conway couple that gave a $100,000 donation to the city. The couple's nickname for their daughter is Lady Bug. At Monday's meeting, council also took a look at Conway Parks and Recreation director Ashley Smith's recommendation for the costs of naming rights, but the recommendation has.a long way to go before it's final.
