Good Samaritan Society – Fairfield Glade has a new park thanks to the generous people of Crossville, Tennessee. The park sits on land that was once filled with equipment, supplies and excess dirt from a two-phase building project.
It was an eye sore. The Society could have landscaped the area, but a greater vision emerged that combined beauty and well-being. Its name: Serenity Park.
At first, the vision for the park included a quarter-mile walking path, large grassy areas and gardens, a gazebo with a fireplace and grills, a memorial area and even a restroom along the path. The challenge was how to pay for this vision on the heels of two building projects.
That’s where generous donors, master gardeners and talented volunteers entered the picture. As the Society shared the vision, resident and community supporters signed up to help.
