According to city of Pigeon Forge officials, the much anticipated Wear Farm City Park is on track to open in March, just in time for spring. And with construction almost complete, expect the area to receive its fair share of looky loos up until then.
The new park was scheduled for completion in March and the forecast is still the same. All the major work has been completed and all the remains are small tasks within the project. Things like landscaping, piecing together the new playground, as well as spring planting are just a few of the remaining to-dos.
The park’s grand opening is scheduled for March, but a date has yet to be set. Later that month, little league baseball games are slated to commence.
Wear Farm City Park replaces nearby City Park, which was torn down to make way for a wastewater facility. Aside from little league baseball diamonds and football fields, picnic areas, walking trails, a basketball court and play areas are a few of the other major amenities that will be included in the park construction.
In all, Wear Farm City Park, located at 647 Wears Valley Road, will be a 118 acre multi-use park. Pigeon Forge is hopeful to start scheduling summer sporting events soon and well be available to large groups by then. As part of the park’s first 40 acre phase, five lighted baseball diamonds, a lighted football field, one multi-purpose field, two full playgrounds, three pavilions, a basketball court, walking trails, and concession stands are scheduled for construction.
The new Wear Farm City Park carries a price tag of about $7.8 million.
