The City of Bryant will host a ribbon cutting for the Joyce Boswell Courts at Mills Park on Friday, September 22nd at 10:00 a.m.
The Greater Bryant Chamber of Commerce will be in attendance to celebrate these new tennis courts.
The courts were named after Bryant Parks Committee Member Emeritus, Joyce Boswell. Boswell has been a resident of Bryant for 83 years and has seen it grow from less than 100 residents to the over 21,000 residents the city has today.
Boswell and her late husband, Ted, have been passionate and active members of the community. Her husband was vital to the creation of the Alcoa 40 Park as he served on a bank board with the CEO of Alcoa. When discussion began about mining the area where Alcoa 40 Park is now, Ted encouraged the CEO to donate the land to make it into a park.
Since then, Boswell has served on the Parks Committee for many years and has been instrumental in advocating for the tennis courts’ restoration, the design and funding of city parks’ signs, and ensuring that trees are not cut down unless they have died.
The City of Bryant invites the public to honor Joyce Boswell and celebrate the new tennis courts.
