New Iberia officials cut the ribbon earlier today on newly renovated tennis courts at City Park.
A pair of parks-department employees raised $30 thousand dollars through private donations and South Louisiana Giving Day to fund the improvements.
City park enhancement Chair Jessica Ditch says this was an extremely large project to pull off, but with the help of volunteers, and community donations, the necessary improvements were finally made.
“This is our second really large project that we’ve been able to complete. All though volunteers and all through donations privately-made through the citizens. it just shows how much, how invested, New Iberia citizens are, and how much we want the betterment of our community.”
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was sponsored by the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce.
