ometimes it takes a partnership to create a project. In 2008, The City of Newberry Parks & Recreation Department was tasked with a plan to create a sports park that would not only beneďŹ t local residents, but would also use sports tourism as an economic engine for the city. As is often the case with small town government budgets, funding was limited. The solution was to form a partnership with other entities that could share resources and funds to create the park. Florida Fish and Wildlife donated land and the Easton Foundation provided additional funds and an archery facility. Other partners included Suwannee River Management District, JULY/AUGUST 2016
