Bean Station cuts ribbon on BlueCross Healthy Place
A ribbon cutting was held at Bean Station’s Harris Court Park for a new BlueCross Healthy Place. Representatives from BlueCross Blue Shield of Tennessee, Bean Station Mayor Ben Waller, Bean Station Aldermen Mickey Ankrom and Eddie Douglas, Grainger County Mayor Mike Byrd, and other members of the community were also on hand to open the new play space. The structure is fully accessible for children of all abilities as well as a splash pad, fitness area, benches, and bike racks. The two-acre Harris Court Park is located off Main Street in Bean Station and was financed through $1.5 million for construction and $300,000 for maintenance from the BlueCross Foundation.
