See photos from the Freedom Park opening ceremony.

The City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department hosted a ribbon cutting and opening ceremony for Freedom Park, located at the corner of Deerfield Parkway and Webb Road (click here for directions) on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11 at 10:45 a.m.

After the ribbon cutting, local veterans raised nine flags representing the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, POW/MIA, the state of Georgia, the United States and the City of Milton.  

Following the raising of the flags, touching remarks were made by Rep. Tom Price and Mayor Pro Tem Bill Lusk, a Vietnam veteran.

The park is now officially open and will serve as an exercise center for the runners, cyclists and walkers on Deerfield Parkway and host the city's patriotic events. It features a .15 mile trail and equipment for sit ups and body curls, a cardio walker, and rowing and elliptical machines. 

No word yet on when city will break ground on the Milton Equestrian Park.
