Fisher Farm Park/ Greenway update from Town of Davidson

Fisher Farm Reopens; Both Gates at Abersham Park to Close

Following a final walk-through, work on the construction of the greenway at Fisher Farm comes to substantial completion today, Tuesday, August 15. This project is part of the Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Master Plan. Fisher Farm is now open for users to enjoy, but we ask that you please remain on the paved greenway and the mountain bike trail areas. Due to recent heavy rains, the contractor will be coming back to complete hydro-seeding in some areas and some other items noted during the walk-through.

Simultaneously, Mecklenburg County will be closing both entry gates to Abersham Park in order to begin that phase of their greenway project.  The Abersham paved path will be repaired and widened to meet county standards along the full length of the greenway. In addition, significant road repairs throughout the park will be performed as part of the project and a small picnic shelter will be installed for park users to enjoy.

We currently anticipate the entire project being completed no later than December 31, 2017.

For more information on this park project, go to http://www.ci.davidson.nc.us/1074/AbershamAllison-Park or contact the North Mecklenburg Region Office at Northparkregion@mecklenburgcountync.gov or 980-314-1001.

Sierra Hull to play Davidson College

Davidson, NC.   OK. I am guilty.  Whenever I talk about Davidson I say how great it is to be in a college town because of the great cultural opportunities.  But, I rarely take advantage.  This time is different.  I like all music, but Americana music is special.  When I learned Sierra Hull was playing at Davidson College next April I went to youtube and checked her out.  I know she was considered a virtuoso mandolin player at age 11.  Now she is an accomplished touring artist in her 20s.  Check out these youtube tracks.
