    Dawley Park

    As a parent and member of a youth sports organization in Radcliff for several years, I have seen the work that the Parks and Recreation Department has put into Dawley Park. It is a very nice family park that supports and houses local sports such as football, soccer, baseball and softball. Because of this I would like to thank the workers and staff of the Parks and Recreation Department for the job they do.
