OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) — North City Park in Opelousas may become home to a large pavilion for family gatherings, children's programs and more.

The Daily World reports (http://bit.ly/1maVnBq) the city has set aside $120,000 for the project and the Board of Aldermen voted recently to seek bids for construction.

Mayor Donald Cravins says the 90-by-120-foot pavilion is part of the city's master plan for parks and could over time be expanded into a larger facility.

Parks master plan committee chairwoman Yvonne Normand says a one-mile trail also may be built at South City Park for walking or jogging.

Normand says she plans to apply for grant funding to help pay for that project.
