GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. -- Trails, trees and the beauty of outdoors.
You can experience this at three new parks opening up in Guilford County next week.
The official openings are scheduled on Oct. 23 and 24.
One of the new parks is the northern section of the Richardson-Taylor Preserve. The park is located in northeast Greensboro. Up until now, only the southern side of the preserve was open to the public. The opening allows people to experience a four-mile trail of wildlife, wetlands and a picnic area. People will have the chance to view an outdoor education classroom and a beaver dam. The grand opening is on Friday, Oct. 23 at 2:45 p.m.
The second site is the Brooks Bridge Paddle Access. The park is located in northeastern Guilford County. Officials say it’s an ideal access point to the Haw River, which includes a safe access area to put-in kayaks and canoes. The grand opening is on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 11:00 a.m.
The third park is the Bold Moon Nature Preserve. The park is located in northeastern Guilford County, off Hicone Road and adjacent to the Reedy Fork Creek. The site offers more than 20 acres that include a hiking trail, a picnic area, a small orchard and much more. The grand opening is on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 12:30 p.m.
County officials are excited about the educational opportunities these sites will offer to local schools and the public.
