WOODSTOCK, Ga - A Cherokee County family is wondering just why they were turned away from a public park when others are allowed to use it.
Rebecca Murray's children wanted to kick a soccer ball on one of the many fields at Badger Creek Park in Woodstock. They were greeted by a locked gate and a man telling them the park wasn't for everyone.
"This is two minutes from my home and I would love to be able to use the park," said Murray. "I was told unless I was a member of CSA soccer, I couldn't come."
The director of Cherokee County Parks and Recreation said the park cost about $5,000,000 taxpayer dollars to build.
The park looks complete, but Cherokee County Manager Jerry Cooper says it is still under construction, and that is part of the issue. There are still sidewalks to build and other additions so the park can meet requirements of the American Disabilities Act.
