River Link Greenway Update-
The River Link Greenway is slated for completion in 2020. Currently there are two section of the River Link Greenway—the new section located at 305 Greenwood Place and the old section located at the South Fork Village Apartments. While NCDOT would not allow Cramerton to make the permanent connection during construction of the new section due to the Wilkinson Blvd. Bridge replacement project planned over the South Fork River slated for sometime between 2020-2023 they have allowed fior a temporary connection of crushed concrete in 2020. This will result in 1.35 miles of contiguous trail.
Out With the Old While Preserving History-
Renovations began on the Community and Senior Center in 2019 and will be complete in 2020. Updates include new ceilings, lights, paint, bathrooms, industrial kitchen equipment in the Community Center and the addition of what will eventually become a History Museum in the Senior Center.
Central Park Get’s a Facelift-
The goats have made their final appearance in Central Park to help with kudzu and Cramerton plans to start work on the park in 2020. Renovations include refurbishing and reopening the restrooms at the picnic shelter, planting new trees and flora, and uncovering the northern end of the natural stream in the park. Upgrades will involve installation of new enhanced natural surface trails, development of single track mountain bike trail, signage for the park and a dedicated park entrance at the corner of Washington and Brooklyn streets.
Start em’ Young-
In spring 2020 Cramerton Parks and Rec. will be offering 3-4 year old t-ball for the first time ever. Solely instructional, this opportunity will offer parents a chance to run their kids tired first thing Saturday morning. More of a social event than a competitive one, the hope is to build off the hugely popular 3-4 year old basketball leagues.
In partnership with Crowned Sparrow Craft Co. and the Cramerton Community Committee, Cramerton Parks and Rec. will be offering a monthly ongoing creative series for the entire year. Everything from making nail and string art, to lighted outdoor Christmas balls, to homemade cookies—be on the lookout for this great opportunity to get your craft on in 2020.
