City plans new parks projects

As soon as next year, you’ll be able to walk on a footpath leading into Freedom Park, watch your children clamber up new playground equipment and set your dog loose in a new dog park in Greenwood.

The city is planning to build more than 2,000 feet of trail along Averitt Road leading into Freedom Park and 330 feet of trail along Main Street. The parks and recreations department also is planning to add new playground equipment to Craig Park.

City officials don’t know yet how much the projects will run and are getting cost estimates for the land for the trails, fences for two new dog parks, and the purchase and installation of the playground equipment.
