Converting part of the Campbellsville Spring property into a county park was proposed by County Commissioner Mike Cesarini at the March meeting of the Giles County Property committee.

Cesarini said while approximately 20 acres is considered spring property there is enough other land for a park.

There would be plenty of room for hiking trails and other activities and the park could be used by scouts and other groups, he added.

Commissioner Roger Reedy also agreed there is a need for recreation areas in the county and the matter should be put on the next Property Committee meeting.

Committee members also accepted a proposal of $2,812 for materials from the Giles County Highway department for gates, guard rails and steel posts to make the spring site more secure and labor costs would be additional 792 dollars.

A sample of a four year lease for the property was recommended by the committee.
