Edgemoor Park Renovation
Edgemoor Park work is complete and the park is now open.
During the construction phase, the Town's Street Department and Buildings and Grounds Department completed the demolition turnkey saving the Town over $40,000.
Adding the seven courts compliments the six court system at Cornelius Rd Park and gives the Parks and Recreation Dept. thirteen total courts consolidated to just two locations. All of which brings appeal to the eyes of USTA and tournament hosts. This allows tournament hosts to operate efficiently within two locations and gaining use to thirteen courts. Six of the courts will be the home for MGSD tennis program and their usage during set hours of Feb-May 3-5pm, Aug-Oct 3-5pm and six to eight dates per those seasons for tennis matches scheduled at the school’s discretion for the hours of 4-9pm. The new location for the schools tennis program is an effort to make way for future development located on the high school campus.
Hours outside of these scheduled time frames will be open to the general public with the exception of a Town or CVB sponsored tournament that will be announced and publicized for general knowledge.
