I have been anxiously waiting for this new park to open. And with it being almost in my backyard, you better believe I was there on opening day.
Knightdale has needed this for a long time - a dog park, walking trails, playing fields, picnic shelters, and a large playground for toddlers and school-age children. Even in its first stage, the park will be a huge asset to Knightdale and its' eastern cousins Wendell and Zebulon.
The playground makes an effort to be ADA compliant with additional accessible swings promised for the future. The initial plans for the park made promises that reclaimed materials (lumber, etc.) would be used whenever possible. It would be interesting to know if that promise was kept.
Perhaps most important would be a promise from park visitors not to treat this new space like the litter repository that nearby Harper Park has become.
