Roanoke-CityThe City of Roanoke now will allow alcohol to be served at Preston Park. In a controversial move, Roanoke City Council on Monday voted to amend city code to include Preston Park to a list of park facilities where alcohol is allowed. Non-profit organizations that hold events at the park can serve beer and wine, but first have to get city approval. There had been some concern about the change, including its proximity to Breckenridge Middle School and Preston Park Elementary School.
