Southern Community Park

Project Summary

The Master Plan for Southern Community Park addresses current and future recreation needs for the Town of Chapel Hill. The community’s input and involvement was extensive throughout the planning and design process. Concerns raised by adjacent neighborhoods, community leaders, recreation groups and town officials during the process were identified and successfully addressed in the final design. This 80-acre park balances active and passive recreation facilities within the environmental limitations of the park property. A constructed wetland at the center of the park treats storm water and serves as a visual focus. Major park elements include three premier athletic fields, a dog park, a roller hockey court, basketball courts, open space, hiking trails and the extension of an existing greenway system. This plan also accommodates a future Community Center and town recycling center.
