Elkmont Mayor Tracy Compton, and members of the City of Elkmont Town Council with members of the Bassham, Phillips and Moore families dedicated the Bassham-Phillips Park Monday, November 6, 2017.

Plans for the Bassham Phillips Park began with the purchase of the property on McWilliams Street from Mr. Will Ed Phillips in April 2013. Work on the park was delayed until the completion of the water tank/pump station project located west of the park on McWilliams Street.

Construction of the pavilion was completed late in 2016. Additional landscape work, installation of play

equipment and the fence were completed in 2017.

The park is named in honor of Mr. Robert Bassham who served on the Elkmont Town Council - Place 3 for 35 consecutive years. Bassham served from May 21, 1979 until his resignation due to health reasons May 21, 2014. Mr. Bassham passed away in January 2016.

Mr. Will Ed Phillips, a long-time resident of the Town of Elkmont, who among other contributions to the Elkmont community, served an extended tenure as a member of the Board of Zoning Adjustment. Mr. Phillips passed away in

November 2014.

The pavilion located in the newly dedicated park is named in honor of Mr. Willie Lawrence Moore.

Mr. Moore attended council meetings on a regular basis after his retirement, and was appointed to fill the vacancy created on the Elkmont Town Council - Place 3 June 26, 2014 due to the resignation of Mr. Bassham earlier in the year. Moore was very involved in the planning and development of the park and served the community faithfully until his death in February 2015.
