The primary purpose of this project is to renovate the existing playground and provide accessibility and stormwater management updates. Other proposed improvements, dependent upon future funding, will include repurposing the existing courts, reconfiguring the parking lot, and adding new site furniture throughout the park.
Greenwood Local Park is located at 18700 Georgia Avenue in Olney. The park was developed in the 1970s and existing amenities include a playground, two tennis courts, a handball court, two full basketball courts, and a gazebo. The playground was last replaced in 1990 and the tennis and basketball courts were last renovated in 2001. A multipurpose field is located along the north side of the park and overlaps the school property. Paths located within the park do not meet current ADA accessibility guidelines.
The design process, including community information gathering, has begun. See below for community meeting details.
