Ellwood Park Renovation

Amarillo - The City's Parks Department and Keep Amarillo Beautiful group plan to spend almost half a million dollars renovating Ellwood Park.

The park has become a popular hang out for homeless people, and neighbors say that's causing problems.

City officials say giving the park a focus will help the problem.

They want to transform it into the first park tailored for senior citizens in the State of Texas.

It will include special workout stations for elderly, a rubber walking track for those with bad joints and a small dog park.
