A gravel driveway, pea sand, and other landscaping in a Pea County park is being renovated after a bank run caused widespread damage.
The Pea Flood Control District announced the $1,000 project in September, and plans to add an additional $1.5 million to the project to cover additional costs and construction.
According to the district, the new gravel driveway will be built in Peacock Park near the intersection of North High Street and West Peacocks Highway.
Officials said the project will not only beautify the area but also provide a place for people to enjoy the scenic view.
Peacock park is home to many bird species, including the bald eagle, wild turkey, red-tailed hawk, and black-tailed hawks.
The park is also home to the Peacocking Bird Sanctuary.
In addition to the gravel driveway being renovated, officials also hope to build a new pavilion for the Peas and a bird feeder.
“It’s going to be a great amenity for people in the community, so we are really excited about it,” said Jim P. Murphy, the district’s director of community outreach and development.
Pete Littman, the deputy director of the Pease Flood Control, said the district is looking for a developer who can invest $1 million in the project.
If approved, the $500,000 cost of the project is paid for with private money.
