Wilson Park Pool Buildings Renovation
The Wilson Park swimming pool is the only municipal pool within the City of Fayetteville and had over 20,800 visitors in 2013 during the summer season. The original Wilson Park pool buildings were built between the 1930s and the 1960s. The last significant renovation of the buildings was in 1983.
In 2012, the pool and deck surfaces were repaired and resurfaced as the first phase of the Wilson Park pool renovation. The next phase of improvements, which includes renovation of the pool house and concession buildings, is on-going. The pool building interior and exterior walls have been painted. The office cabinets and countertops have been installed. Installation of the epoxy floors in the dressing rooms is underway. Construction of the pool entry wall and "fish tail" feature is also underway. These improvements will increase efficiency in use of space, increase ventilation, provide better ADA access and update the restroom and shower facilities. Construction began in November 2013 and is scheduled to be completed before the pool opens for the 2014 season.
Mount Sequoyah Gardens Improvements
The City of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department is delighted to announce that the much anticipated improvements at Mount Sequoyah Gardens are nearing completion! Mount Sequoyah Gardens is located in Fayetteville’s southeast quadrant along Summit Avenue. The park overlooks the city from the west slope of Mount Sequoyah and offers passive recreational activities in an open space with stunning views of the city. The elevation is 1,590 feet at the top of the park property.
The project includes construction of an overlook arbor with native flagstone paving, a native stone seat wall, ADA accessible parking and access and replacement of the existing asphalt entry drive. The arbor has been erected, and construction of the stone seat wall, flagstone slab and sidewalk is complete. Construction of the project is expected to be completed in spring 2014.
