Officials with the city of Dayton and BlueCross BlueShield broke ground on renovations to the city’s Pendergrass Park. Located on Main Street across from the Rhea County Welcome Center, the upgraded park will include two accessible play areas for both younger and older children, a splash pad, a fitness area, pavilions, benches, restrooms, and a walking track. Renovations are being funded by a $4 million BlueCross Healthy Place grant with an additional $800,000 from the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Foundation set aside for park maintenance.
