News Brief: New Chatham park

At its meeting on January 22, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners approved two major grant applications and an initial concept design plan to begin development of the new Northeast District Park on Big Woods Road.

Chatham County operates ballfields in Bynum and recently completed the major phase of Southwest Park in Bear Creek, but other parks have not yet been developed. Last fall, the Board of Commissioners purchased nearly 67 acres on Big Woods Road for the Northeast District Park. Recreation fees paid by developers when land is subdivided paid for the purchase of the land.
The first phase of Northeast District Park is expected to include a baseball field, multi-purpose field, walking trail, natural areas and a playground. It also will include a building with concession stand, restrooms and covered eating area.

    Is this also called “Big Woods Park”? Would you please give some directions to where it will be? and will there be a disc golf course in this park?
