Garner’s parks system has long been a treasured asset to our residents and a big draw for visitors to our community. As we continue to grow, there will be an expanding need for additional parks and recreation amenities as well as increased maintenance needs. The Town is aware that residents would like to see a more robust greenway network and athletic fields in the years to come. In addition, there will be a need for improvements to some of our existing parks and recreational facilities.
The Parks and Recreational Bonds, totaling up to $35.5 million, would allow for:
- phased development of Town-owned parkland, including multipurpose athletic fields on the Yeargan property on East Garner Road and nature trails and other amenities in Meadowbrook near White Oak Road;
- rehabilitation and upgrades of certain existing parks and recreational facilities, including installation of a splashpad at a location yet to be determined;
- expansion of Garner’s greenway system;
- and future parkland acquisition.
