Improvements coming to Wiley B. McMillan Park? Apparently so.

Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter will host a press conference on Tuesday, July 17 at 10 a.m., about Wiley B. McMillan Park, located at 343 Goos Street. The conference will reportedly detail a "new public-private partnership that will invest a half million dollars in park infrastructure and programming. This will be accomplished through existing revenue and private donations and without any additional taxation."

This puts a smile on my face, especially considering McMillan Park is in the neighborhood I grew up in. Stay posted, as I gather more information.
