SAVANNAH, GA (November 19, 2018) — The City of Savannah held a ribbon cutting today to celebrate the additions to Tribble Park with Mayor Eddie DeLoach, Alderman Tony Thomas, City staff and members of the community.

Tribble who was a resident of Windsor Forest that served as undersecretary of energy under President Ronald Reagan. Mr. Tribble died in 2003 and the park was officially named in his honor the very next year.
“Here is what hard work, dedication and remaining to the cause looks like after almost twenty years,” said Alderman Tony Thomas. “You get a true sense of nature in the middle of a City standing in Tribble Park.”
Tribble Park is located in the Windsor Forest neighborhood of District 6. The neighborhoods of White Bluff and Wilshire Estates are located in close proximity to Windsor Park.
The additions to Tribble Park align with the priority of Neighborhood Revitalization within the Savannah Forward strategic plan.
