DELPHI, IN — More than two years after Abigail "Abby" Williams and Liberty "Libby" German were murdered, their families have announced that they have raised the funds necessary to pay for a park built in memory of the two best friends.

The girls' families say they have raised the $50,000 that they needed in order for the state to provide them with a matching grant of $50,000 dollars, according to The Indy Channel. The $100,000 is slated to fund, among other features, an amphitheater at the park.

But the fundraising will continue so that picnic shelters, softball fields, and playgrounds can be added.

Construction on the park began in March. The families have said that they hope that the memorial will appeal to those who appreciate the arts and athletics, which were things that the girls both enjoyed.
