IN THIS WEEK’S RUNDOWN – Parks, Food Truck, and Art

Time for some nostalgia, folks. Who among you remembers the time when people used to swim and camp and fish near Langan Lake when Mobile City first purchased the “Municipal Park” decades ago?

Here’s some good news!

The City is making an investment of over $45 million into Langan and the surrounding area that will greatly enhance the environment, recreational opportunities, and the quality of life for citizens who use the park. We hear that this upgrade includes renovated pavilions, a renovated amphitheater, new barbecue pits, and a deeper lake that can accommodate smaller boats like kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats!

Doesn’t that sound exciting?

Have you also heard about the Food Trucks that have been touring around our parks?
Each event will take place in a different City park and feature games, music, trivia, and food from some of our best mobile eateries.

Busted in Mobile (Bay)

This time, you can be busted!

This is a call to join hands for a Mobile Police Department dispatcher who is battling COVID-19. Dakota Lee Vest-Wright was pregnant when she was admitted to the hospital for complications due to COVID-19 and had to deliver her baby early. A blood drive in her honor is being held at LifeSouth Donor Center at 957 Hillcrest Road in Mobile and begins this Saturday, April 24, and continues until Sunday, May 1.

Refreshments will be served for those who will come to extend their help.
