Empie Park ImprovementsThe $1 million improvement project at Empie Park is continuing on schedule despite impacts from Hurricane Florence. The project includes five new tennis courts with LED lights, 61 parking spaces, a second access via Caswell Street and additional sidewalk connections that will connect to the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail. No closures are scheduled for the park, the tennis complex or the trail. Over the next several weeks, crews will be paving the new courts, installing light poles and fencing and painting the tennis courts. The project is funded by the city’s multi-year construction program approved as part of the city’s annual budget. The project is still expected to be completed in late fall.

Pictured to the right are recently-installed poles which will support fencing around the new tennis courts.
