Work under way on Sullivan Park upgrade

Crews began work Monday on a new playground at Sullivan Park in the Green Meadows community. After part of the current playground is removed start a new playground will be installed.

The Sullivan Park restrooms and the playground area closest to the basketball courts will remain open during construction. The construction area is  marked, and the public is advised to stay out of the work zone until the project is completed.

The City of Hendersonville applied for and received a grant from the North Carolina Recreation and Park Association to replace a portion of the playground. At a community meeting on May 7, Public Works Director Tom Wooten invited residents from the Green Meadows neighborhood to vote for the playground design they wanted to see be installed in the park. Hendersonville Public Works expects the new playground installation to be complete by the end of this month, depending on weather conditions.
