Crosby Commons & Picayune Parks

2018 MS Main Street Awards Nomination Request for Picayune Main Street, Inc. Crosby Commons

· Outstanding Public Improvement Project – This award is given to the municipality or Main Street program that has designed and implemented attractive and sympathetic improvements for its district. Improvements must be within the Main Street district. Streetscapes are included.

The Crosby Commons Project was nearly 5 years in the making, involving a host of partnerships including City Officials, local organizations, regional foundations, and many others.

It is a 5 acre, fenced-in community Green-space located on Goodyear Boulevard in Historic Downtown Picayune. A 1/3-mile paved walking track, benches and tables, historic markers, flower beds, trees and shrubbery, a 2430 sq. ft amphitheater (with restrooms and changing rooms), sound systems and speakers throughout the park, and lighting around the track for nighttime use are some amenities. There are also utility hook-ups for mobile vendors. Citizens and visitors enjoy the park for exercise and relaxation and the park has been used by hundreds for larger venues.

Funding came mainly through donations, foundation grants and donated labor.

The park offers local citizens and visitors expanded opportunities for fitness, healthy recreation and a safe, secure area for community building.
