Ann Jones, general manager of Parks and Recreation says, "We're in the process of constructing a stage for the park, for many years you know we've had lots of events up here… we've had to bring in temporary staging and so this will allow us to have a permanent structure…a permanent covered structure actually now for all those events we host here at the park."

The second area of construction is actually part of a larger ongoing project. The Gordon's Creeks Park Association is completely part two of their pedestrian walkways over areas of Gordon's Creek throughout Hattiesburg.  The area is spread out over 3.2 linear miles.
