The City Park, now called the Buford Pusser Memorial Park, that once was a sandlot and horse barn was established by non other than Buford Pusser and the Adamsville Jaycees in October 1973. Money raised from a concert of top-notch artists that included George Jones and Tammy Wynette began the funding of the City Park. Funding from the concert and grants through the city have built the park the way it is today. The park consists of a lighted basketball court, lighted tennis courts, playground with a variety of equipment for kids to enjoy, three ball fields, open air pavilion, picnic tables, 4 grills, shade trees and a walking track.
To reserve the Pavilion in the Buford Pusser Memorial Park for a party or event, call the City Hall. There is no charge, but this is an open public facility and the city is not responsible for activities around the pavilion at the time of your party.
