New Amenities Coming to Rock Quarry Park

Construction is underway at Rock Quarry Park and expected to be completed in Summer of 2021. Please stay safe and respect construction fencing and signage.

Rock Quarry Park will receive some new park amenities to include a stage platform with electrical service upgrades, an accessible path, a planted stormwater basin, water service, stream bank restoration, and a new 12’ wide bridge and park entrance over Ellerbee Creek near the National Guard Armory. The park's new features will also include a sculpture art structure and a dog park.

Renovations will take place through July, weather permitting. During construction, the field will be closed to allow heavy equipment, demolition, earthmoving, and paving in the park. Work will also be taking place alongside the Vietnam Veterans Trail. Parking near the tennis courts may be limited at times. The restroom at the tennis courts will be renovated this summer as well. The tennis courts will remain open.

Beginning Friday, June 11, the sprayground, swings, and sandbox area will be closed for approximately two weeks (weather permitting) to replace the play surfacing area.
