HISTORY (Research completed by Cheryl Michaels and Janet Ross 2009)
Robert O. Park is located off Bridlewood.  The park was named in honor of Robert O. New who served as Sidney Parks and Recreation Director since 1985.  From 1972 through 1980, he was athletic director and head basketball coach at Sue Bennett Junior College in London, Kentucky, after teaching and coaching basketball at Sidney High School in 1971.  New had also served as boys’ basketball coach at Lehman High School for five years, coaching while working full-time as Parks Director. 

The park was named for Mr. New in 2008.  This park was deeded to the City by the developers of Plum Creek Subdivision. It consists of 11-plus acres of playfields and another 11.34 acres of green space to be accessed by walkway.
