Unity Park, located on Douglas L. Conner Drive, was inspired by citizens who wanted to honor those who soldiered for civil rights in Oktibbeha County and the state of Mississippi.
The Unity Park was created to honor those people who have contributed to Civil Rights and
Unity in Oktibbeha County in previous years and years to come. It provides a positive place of
civic pride where all people, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, can
come together to celebrate peace, harmony and unity in our community.
