The Town of Leland will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for Founders Park renovations on Friday, Oct. 20, at 1 p.m. at Founders Park, located at 113 Town Hall Drive. Community members are invited to celebrate this milestone with Town Council, Town staff, contractors, and regional partners.
The project will include adding amenities such as an amphitheater, splash pad, veterans memorial, updated playground, natural play area, fitness stations, walking trails, a picnic/restroom facility, and open space.
“I’m so proud of all the hard work that has gone into planning for this project to get us to this monumental moment,” Mayor Brenda Bozeman said. “Breaking ground on Founders Park renovations is a great accomplishment for the Town, bringing us one step closer to a beautiful new park that will benefit Leland families and their children for generations to come.”
Construction is expected to take a year to complete. The park, including adjacent parking lots, will be closed to the public for the duration of construction. Project updates will be available on the Town website.
The Founders Park renovation project has been in the works since November 2019 and has included opportunities for public input. Founders Park serves as the flagship facility for a myriad of events and programs throughout the year, including concerts and movies in the park, Trunk or Treat, and Leland in Lights.
