"I wish I knew how to tell you 'thank you' in 100 languages, but I don’t so the traditional one will have to suffice. Thank you Benton, thanks for your faith and trust in us. I hope all of you are as proud of these facilities as we are, it gives all of us reason to be BENTON PROUD!" - Mayor David Mattingly.
April 1 was a day that is marked in this city's history. The opening of Riverside Park was, as noted by blogger Jerry Coston, "A Truly Grand Opening." He files a story on the events of the day and a video highlighting the many fun activities that occurred. Check it out! We are extremely #BentonProud
Join us tomorrow starting at 9:30 for pre-grand opening entertainment from the Benton Band and Benton High School Cheerleaders. Followed by the Grand Opening program at 10:00am. The new Riverside Park is located next to the Saline County Fairgrounds.
