NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) -

Construction has started on a new park in Newport.

According to a post on DRIVE Newport's Facebook page, work on the Terry Scoggins Memorial Music Stage on Front Street began this week.

The group said they wanted to thank the crews from the Frank A. Rogers Company that had been working in the 100-degree weather.

They also thanked Mark Robertson and MESA Landscape Architects for the park’s design.

They added they wanted to thank the hundreds of people who have donated to the park, but are still taking donations.

If you want to help by donating, you can contact their group at 870-523-1009 and ask for Jon or Julie.
