Benton has plan for N. Albany Park

Written April 7th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

The good news is that the boat remains. The bad news in the planning for upgrading North Albany County Park? Well, as near as I can see, there isn’t any bad news in the concepts unveiled during a community meeting Thursday night.

North Albany County Park is not usually a busy place. No crowds jostle for space. Which makes it a welcome oasis among the subdivisions spreading out on all sides. Now Benton County is seeking public “input” on what the park could or should be in years to come.

As you can see, Benton County has been taking good care of the old Palestine Church since it was moved to Adair Village in 2010 from its site on Palestine Road in North Albany, where it had sat for more than 100 years.
