The City of Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Department recently held public meetings and hosted an online survey asking for your input on amenities for two new city parks: Westside Park and Eastside Park.

Staff has been working to incorporate your suggestions into the design of the parks. We would like to invite you to see the new renderings of the parks from 6:30-8 pm., May 14, at the Laureate Center, Kannapolis City Hall, 401 Laureate Way, Kannapolis. Drop-in anytime during the meeting to view the renderings and give us your ideas.

The westside park will be located off N.C. 73 near Christ the King Catholic High School. This 45-acre park would be for rectangular and diamond sports such as soccer, baseball, softball, and football. The eastside park will be in the Lake Fisher area of the City on 33 acres. Preliminary ideas for this park are amenities such as lakefront walking trails, a playground, a dog park, a splash pad, paddle boats and shelters.

The City plans to apply for grants to help pay for the construction of the parks and construction would begin in 2022 if funding is secured.
