DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The City of Dothan has closed the contract for the construction at the BMX track and they came in under budget.

The money was used to build a new facility at the south end of Westgate Park, a restroom, and a concession stand, especially for the huge BMX event that draws hundreds of people.

The contract for a concession stand and restroom at the BMX track at Westgate Park in Dothan cost the city $1,074,000, which is cheaper than the original price of $1.1 million the city anticipated so now that’s about $36,000 saved to return to the city’s financial account.

Before the new building, officials say the facility they were using was inadequate and it wasn’t A.D.A. compliant, but now it will is. This will not only benefit the event experience but enhance the park as a whole.

“There really were no facilities at that end of the park or that end of the trail,” Dothan General Services Director, Andrew Love said. “A lot of people walk and ride bikes. Now we have a facility on that end, so it enhances the overall park as well as BMX.”

The restrooms will remain open even if there is no event scheduled at the complex.

Circle City BMX will handle the concession stand during events and Love believes these new additions will bring more people to the park.
