Deadly School Shooting In Parkland COMPLETE COVERAGEPHOTOS

FT. LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – Ft. Lauderdale city officials and community leaders have officially re-dedicated a popular park after it received a major make over.

On Saturday a ceremonial ribbon cutting was held to open the Joseph C. Carter Park at 1450 W. Sunrise Blvd.

The renovations at the park were made possible through a partnership between the city and the Orange Bowl committee.

The three million dollar renovation included new synthetic turf for the football field, a state of the art eight lane track, enhanced seating and scoreboard.

“It’s a better day for our kids. It’s a better day for the future of this community. The life lessons that will be taught out here by the coaches, the life lessons that will be learned out here by the players, how to compete, how to win,” said Ft. Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler.

The park will allow underprivileged children to have the chance to participate in a number of athletic leagues, after school programs and summer camps.
