Egans Creek 2

You may have noticed the fencing around a part of the Egans Creek Park grounds.  That’s the exciting sign that the redevelopment of the park is about to begin!  Soon, you’ll see some items on the site being removed, ground being reshaped, and a building going up.  The building will be the restroom facilities new to the site.  Drive by often and see the work as it progresses!

Mark your calendars!  Groundbreaking for the Egans Creek Park project will be at 4:30 PM on February 12.  Benjamin Morrison of Cotner Associates, Inc. Architects has created this final layout design of the plans for the park.

We would like to extend special thanks to Parker Contracting for generously offering tremendous support for this project. They will be acting as the General Contractor for the redevelopment, as well as providing a large amount of the labor necessary to construct the new restroom facilities and public pavilions on-site.

Additionally, the following local companies will be participating in the project through generous contributions of materials and labor:

RPM Lumber, Coastal Current Electric, Bill Ross Plumbing, Myers Tractor Service, Coastal Landscapes, Nitelites, Burt Wright Construction, and Manzie and Drake Land Surveyors.

We appreciate all of the contributors, great and small, who have helped to make this project a reality!
