McGill Attends Hollybrook Road Park Groundbreaking Event
MCGILL ATTENDS GROUNDBREAKING
Yesterday, McGill attended the Hollybrook Road Park Groundbreaking event in Wendell, North Carolina. The Wendell Mayor, Mayor Pro-Tem, Police Chief, Parks and Rec Team and others were in attendance.
The 19-acre park is intended to connect surrounding residential communities by providing pedestrian and bicycle access, as well as amenities such as a walking track, an adventure playground, basketball courts, pickleball courts, and a completely accessible playground. According to the municipality of Wendell, construction is scheduled to be completed in early 2025.
MCGILL’S INVOLVEMENT IN THE PROJECT
After completing a Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan in 2019, the Town of Wendell was looking to build a park on Hollybrook Road between two residential areas. McGill assisted the community with master planning and funding assistance to begin development of this park.
Our team also assisted the Town with the design, bidding and award, and construction administration for phase one of the project.
Amenities were selected based on the results of the master plan survey, and the park was designed to offer a variety of activities and support for Wendell’s natural environment. This project was partly funded by North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF).
SIGNIFIGANCE OF ATTENDING GROUNDBREAKING EVENTS
Attending groundbreaking ceremonies allows McGill to celebrate the projects we have worked on and demonstrate our continued involvement from the initial conception and planning stages to the actual commencement of construction.
It shows our dedication to seeing a project through to its completion and beyond. It also provides an opportunity for us to build and strengthen relationships with our clients, communities, and other stakeholders involved in the project.
McGill Principal and Raleigh Office Manager Robert Miller said, “It was great to see the Town of Wendell leadership realize their commitment to public amenities with this groundbreaking. When finished, Hollybrook Road Park will be a great addition to the Town and will have a positive impact on the quality of life for local neighborhood residents around the park and across the area. No doubt the park will become a gathering place for families and friends for many years. McGill is honored to have partnered with the Town on the development of its comprehensive master plan for parks and recreation and to be a part of this meaningful project.”
