Greensboro Country Park is going to begin its transformation next month.
The $4.8 million construction project at Country Park is scheduled to begin in June, and as part of the project the Nathaniel Greene Loop Drive through the park will be permanently closed to motor vehicles.
People using the park are being asked to park at Jaycee Park at 3802 Jaycee Park Dr. while they enjoy Country Park. The loop road currently is only open to motorized vehicles on weekdays, but that will end on June 21. More info about Tadacip http://valleyofthesunpharmacy.com/tadacip/
The loop road will continue to be open for pedestrians and cyclists, but starting June 21, people won’t have to worry about getting out of the way of a car.
The project, which will add Greensboro Parks and Recreation’s very first zipline, is part of the 2016 bond package to create a Battleground Parks District.
Along with the zipline over Sloan Lake, the construction will add skywalk pathways in the trees, a new promenade area for events, an additional picnic shelter and more restrooms.
The dog park will be moved near the Lawndale Drive park entrance, next to the ADA accessible parking area.
Parks and Recreation Director Nasha McCray said, “Country Park’s loop road is beloved by cyclists, athletes, and nature walkers. Setting aside this car-less space will preserve this urban oasis for pedestrians, bikes, strollers and mobility devices even as we add more attractions and expect annual visits to increase. Residents are going to love the final results.” Xanax for Anxiety http://www.024pharma.com/xanax.html
The park will remain open through the construction process, which is expected to be completed in 2022.
Residents who want to avoid the whole construction process may download the Piedmont Discovery mobile app to find other and perhaps quieter parks in Greensboro and Guilford County.
This is far from the first transformation of Country Park. Some folks remember when there was a swimming platform in the middle of the lake and swimming was a supervised summer activity. And back then Country Park was considered pretty far out in the country.
Armed security checkpoints at all schools, FIRST!
Yes, years ago when folks did swim there, the lake was nice. Now, however, it has filled up with so much silt that it has become murky and really needs to be dredged so that the lake can once more contain more water and have more depth. It should not continue like it is, becoming a shallow swamp.
This is very inconsiderate for seniors who love to bring their dogs to the dog park. This is a slap in the face to the elderly and disabled.
What? Why? The park is staying open. Should we just wait to make improvements until there are no longer any people using the park? This sounds like you think the world revolves around you.
Might there be shuttles for those who can’t walk the 1.6 mile road around the park? The dog park is too far to walk from any of the entry points. I look forward to the improvements and hope easy accessibility will be available.
will it be wheelchair/walker friendly? Concrete walkways?
