South Arm Park to get bigger following house demolition

South Arm Park is about to get a little bit bigger.

The city has secured a demolition permit for 9040 Williams Rd., a house owned by the city and former residence of a park caretaker.

One of the city's largest parks, South Arm Park surrounds the 7,900-square-foot lot where the house sits. It's located near South ARm Community Hall.

City spokesperson Ted Townsend said once the house is demolished, the land will be absorbed by the park.

The caretaker's residence is now located in a suite adjacent to the pool, Townsend said.
