Work has started to bring a state-of-the-art bicycle riding facility to Pickens’ Town Creek Park.
PICKENS — Construction has started to revitalize Pickens’ Town Creek Park.
On Monday, crews from J Davis Construction began their work at the park under the supervision of the city’s engineer, Darrohn Engineering. In addition, Elevated Trail Design will assist with installation of bike-specific riding features.
The park’s Playground of Promise, tennis courts and Town Creek Trail willbe closed from construction until April 18, while the lower recreation center parking lot will also be closed until fall. The entire master plan for the project will take several years to complete, but can be viewed at the recreation center and towncreekpark.com.
Major features of the project include: 3,000 linear feet of new dirt on a single-track trail for hikers and bikers; a paved 8-foot wide greenway called the “Appalachian Lumber Greenway,”
