(Fayetteville, N.C.) – Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks & Recreation wants residents to know more about upcoming park bond projects and is placing informative signs at five of the seven locations of future splash pads. Signs designating the locations of splash pads have been placed at Kiwanis, Massey Hill, Myers, E.E. Miller and Gilmore Therapeutic recreation centers. Additional signs will be added as other park bond projects site locations are finalized.

 

“The signs will let our residents know about future park bond projects and will also link to the City’s website, which displays locations for all future park bond projects on an interactive map,” said Kevin V. Arata, Corporate Communications Director. “The website will also provide information about the construction date and status of the park bond projects. We are looking forward to keeping residents informed through the on-site project signs and website updates.”
