ton Park... we are playing tee-ball
at Armory Park.
“We built the new park so dif
ferent age levels could play in the
same place,” he said. “We have
brothers playing at two different
parks at the same time.”
Last year there were roughly
600 kids in the baseball program,
Jackson said. Now, there are 750.
Other sports are growing as
“It’s not just baseball,” the
director said. “Every sport is the
same. We are shorter on basketball
gyms than we are on baseball
In 2003, there were 703 kids
participating in the recreation
program. This year the department
will serve 2,400.
“We won’t turn them away,”
Jackson said. “The only thing we
can do is play Wednesday nights
and Saturdays. We try not to play
on church night, and Saturday we
use for makeup games.
“It’s a good thing that the
county is growing,” he said. “It’s
a great thing to have growing
Part of the problem is parking,
which is under capacity at the new
park and nearly non-existent at
Burlington. This week, county
workers created a new gravel
parking lot at the new park to try
to free up some additional space.
Jackson said game times
are the busiest, but citizens are
regularly using walking trails at
the park, and children from Hoke
schools, daycares and head start
are constantly on the playground
equipment as well.
With growth comes new op
portunity. Hoke County will host
the Dixie Youth League state
baseball tournament for nine- and
10-year-olds in July, an event
that’s never been held here. The
games could bring some sales tax
to the county, Jackson said.
As for adding additional fields
or play area at the new park - it’s
not going to happen any time soon.
“I have a long range plan... but
you are at the mercy of the long
range plan of the county,” Jackson
said. “Wecan’tputaparkin every
community, which would be ideal.
Every department has been told to
keep at no growth this year if pos

multi-million dollar park, that’s
out of the question.”
