Selma Burke Recreation Center Revitalization Project

The Town's objective is to expand upon Culture, Parks, Recreation and Education opportunities by way of strategic growth in areas that have been expressed as a need by our Citizenry. These needs include quality afterschool care, affordable summer camps, activities and options for youth and adults alike. Data from our recent Culture, Parks and Recreation Master Plan vet the strong support in establishing more neighborhood parks and multi-generational facilities (something for everyone). The outcome of revitalizing the Selma Burke Center will yield significant opportunities in providing quality programming, enrichment and recreation for all ages championing the model of impacting communities through Conservation, Health & Wellness and Social Equity.

Edgemoor Park Renovation

Edgemoor park is now officially closed and demolition of the old park has been completed minus the removal of the ball field and tennis court lights which will be removed by the awarded contractor (contractor still pending).

The Towns Street Department and Buildings and Grounds Department completed the demolition turnkey saving the Town over $40,000.

Design and construction documents are now 95% complete and project bidding will commence in the coming weeks. The project is on schedule to have the park re-opened to the public by Fall 2016.

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.
