The city’s Parade of Parks continued Thursday afternoon at Jack Waite Park on McCabe Street in Natchez. City officials got help from Ryland Johnson, great nephew of Ward 1 Alderwoman Valencia Hall, who helped to unveil the park’s new sign. The city spent more than a year renovating and refreshing each of the city’s parks. At Jack Waite, new features include a disc golf basket as well as tables for checkers and chess and other new playground equipment.

The city’s Parade of Parks continues on Nov. 30 at 4 p.m. at Osceola Park, 204 Choctaw St. (Jan Griffey | The Natchez Democrat)
