(MENA) Park improvements are underway at Janssen Park in downtown Mena.
A much needed new basketball court has been poured and city officials expect to have that project completed by the time the annual Lum and Abner Festival arrives three weeks time.
Gazebo work and the reshingling of various roofs within the park are also being undertaken by city workers. The thousands of people who attend the festival will see not only the gazebo work and new concrete for the court but also that Janssen Park has undergone a thorough cleaning and landscaping.
Electric and water lines have already been installed by contractors and are good to go for the festival.
