The City of Aiken and Department of Parks and Recreation will be coming together on Monday November 13 at 4PM to celebrate groundbreaking on the newest City Park.  Groundbreaking will be held at the site (1671 Columbia Highway, N Aiken) and will include words from several City Council members, the Mayor, and Chair of the Recreation Commission.

Phase I of the park, a 2.5 million dollar project, will feature a number of amenities including a 300-seat amphitheater, an Extreme Generation playground, a family restroom and water fountain, approximately 1 mile of natural walking trails, a picnic shelter, green space, and a parking lot to accommodate those who will wish to enjoy the new environment.

Out of 120 acres, the above amenities will be developed on 40 acres – leaving room for future expansion of additional phases, to include multi-purpose athletic fields, added trails, and even more recreational opportunities.
