For more than a decade, Guilford County and the City of Greensboro have been trying to figure out the best use for Bryan Park North and now they’re asking the public for further input.
The Guilford County Parks Department and the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department are working together to update the Bryan Park North Master Plan and they want to hear all ideas from the potential users of the 534 acres of forest and fields that has been the subject of discussion over the years.
While there’s been a lot of talk for a long time, there’s been very little development of the resource.
There are several ways to provide your input on the future park: an online survey that can be found at https://www.guilfordcountync.gov/our-county/county-parks/bryan-park-north-master-plan-update-survey, a PDF printable survey available from the departments – and comments and questions can also be sent to Guilford County Parks at GCParks@guilfordcountync.gov.
Bryan Park North is distinct from – but often confused with – the city-owned Bryan Park.
Bryan Park North consists of open space in the Browns Summit area near Lake Townsend. The property is jointly owned by Greensboro and Guilford County.
All that open space is currently getting some use. It currently includes equestrian trails and mountain bike trails and there’s also an “airfield” for remote control planes and other small flying devices.
The “2015 Bryan Park at Guilford County Master Plan” explored adding amenities such as more trails, soccer and lacrosse fields, space for RV camping, picnic shelters, a spray-ground and a playground.
The two local governments are currently working on an update to the master plan that will determine what the future should hold for the park.
The updated plan to come will include timelines and estimated costs for future development phases.
Even more soccer fields!
How about high density high rise public housing like in NY and NJ?
Now you’re just being plain evil. Appreciate the suggestion, but we’ll pass on that, and we’ll pass on more soccer fields also.
Since they insist on expanding the “park in this area I’d like to see an adaptive, accessible playground and park area for people who use walkers, canes, and wheelchairs, people with low vision, or have hearing loss. Using things like ramps, wooden walkways, elevated planting beds, accessible bathing and bathroom facilities, accessible play and sports facilities (like beep softball, wheelchair basketball), accessible camping spaces, and trails for motorized vehicles the disabled (like E-Wheels or Vita Monster).
Excellent idea Deborah! Hopefully the county will take your idea and make it a reality.
Maybe there is a need for an additional parking deck…
Have you ever been at Bryan Park during soccer tournament time?
Need housing need high rises.Think of the people. Too many parks ,too much white privilege as it is.
Hey Jay. Screw you and what you you think about White Privilege
You could fit 3,000 tiny homes on that parcel and eliminate the homelessness problem for the rest of the 21st Century
Hey tuna maybe you and Chris can get together and build a few on your dime. Dumba$$
i would use 3 visits/day bus with bike rack service originating from the depot to the area so i could fish, store & use my sailboat @ lake townsend etc. residents in the area could use it – perhaps by appt only. consider a 6 to 10 passenger van with bike rack. consider adding package/parcel/produce/food delivery to this & SHAZZAMM ! u have capitalism ! a proud new business owner instead of more gov’t parasites.
