DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) - Work continues to build a memorial park in honor of Abby Williams and Libby German.

A new sign marks the location of the site. It will be located near the intersection of the Hoosier Heartland and 218, just northeast of Delphi.

The park will include softball fields, benches and picnic tables made from bottle caps donated by the community.

Mike Patty, Libby's grandfather, said right now they are in the process of writing grants. They are also looking for sponsors for various aspects of the parks, like concession stands or shelters.

Libby's grandparents said it will be a place that represents the spirit of the girls. It will be a place for kids for many years to come.

"I'm sure some of them will say, 'Well, who is Abby and Libby?' So, their story will always be told and it will always be something that the community can use," said Becky Patty, Libby's grandmother.

Mike said the goal is to start building some of the infrastructure this year. He said it would be nice for teams to be able to play on the fields in 2019.
