MILLS RIVER — The town of Mills River has set a grand opening for its new town park 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 22.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 4 p.m. followed by free food, exhibitions and games. Local businesses are sponsoring the family friendly event.
The town park has walking trails, a playground and dog park, and the Town Board has approved construction of four tennis courts with town money and a $75,000 donation from Councilman Wayne Carland and his family.
The 50-acre site between the Mills River and N.C. 191 includes the Town Hall, town library and commons. The town covered half the cost of the $1 million park and a state Parks and Recreation Trust Fund grant covered the rest.
