New “Hickey” White Park in Crystal City set for work next year

(Crystal City) There are plans for work to begin next year on the new Darrell “Hickey” White Park in Crystal City. Crystal City City Administrator Jason Eisenbeis says they are taking some of the bids now, and another bid opening later this week for some of the other plans they will put into place this spring/summer.

Eisenbeis says phase one will happen in 2024, with more additions likely for the following year.

The new Darrell “Hickey” White Park will be located along County Road in Crystal City, a little south of the Twin City Little League fields.

The park was named for Crystal City High School basketball player Darrell “Hickey” White, who died in 1977 of a blood disorder at age 18, shortly before graduation.
