CANTON, TX (KLTV) - Downtown Canton has a new place for folks to sit back and relax.

The new Canton Town Square Park sits on the corner of East Dallas and Buffalo Street. City officials say the park was built in an effort to help revitalize the downtown area.

The new park features an outdoor stage for live entertainment and also plenty of places to sit in the shade. Also located on the corner outside the park is a statue that pays tribute to First Monday Trade Days. The statue was originally located across town, but was moved downtown since that’s where Trade Days got its start.

The park was dedicated this past weekend with a special ceremony.
