Renovations for Bethel Park in Morganton are set to start in February with the official closure to the public starting February 5th. After many months of preparation, the city is moving forward with Baker Grading to begin the renovation and repair process for Bethel Park. Flooding issues within the park prompted these renovations and repairs.
The city is taking these steps to help resolve these flooding issues and to make other improvements as well. Stream restoration, park improvements, new playground equipment, relocation of the dog park, new picnic shelter, new walking track with workout stations and new bridges entering the park are among the list of updates.
A reopen date is not available at this time, but renovations are anticipated to take up to one year. The city will keep the public updated with periodic updates during the renovation process through the city website and social media.
While these renovations are being made, city officials invite residents to enjoy the Morganton’s other public parks including Catawba Meadows, Freedom Park, Carbon City Park, Drexel Heritage Park, Martin Luther King Jr. Park and Martha’s Park.[News release courtesy of City of Morganton]
