“This will be a new park added to the city’s park system. as well we will be introducing new golf facilities to the community. This will allow us to expand the programming that we have at our municipal golf course by offering programs to youth and beginner golfers. We intend to heavily market the facility and bring in kids to learn the game of golf,” Superintendent of Recreation and Services for City of Wilmington, Amy Beatty said.

City leaders say they have consistently received feedback from folks wanting walking and biking trails, which they plan to include in the project.

The design phase of the project should begin by spring of 2012 with the project being completed by winter of 2012 or early in 2013.
