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

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

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.
