City and county park departments seeking ideas for Bryan Park North
For more than a decade, Guilford County and the City of Greensboro have been trying to determine the best use of Bryan Park North and are now asking the public for more information.
The Guilford County Parks Department and the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department are working together to update the Bryan Park North Master Plan and they want to hear any ideas from potential users of the 534 acres of forest and fields that have been discussed over the years.
Although there has been a lot of discussion for a long time, there has been very little development of the resource.
There are several ways to give your opinion on the future park: an online survey available on https://www.guilfordcountync.gov/our-county/county-parks/bryan-park-north-master-plan-update-surveya printable PDF survey available from the departments – and comments and questions can also be sent to Guilford County Parks at [email protected]
Bryan Park North is distinct from – but often confused with – city-owned Bryan Park.
Bryan Park North consists of open space in the Browns Summit area near Lake Townsend. The property is jointly owned by Greensboro and Guilford County.
All of this open space is currently in use. It currently includes horse trails and mountain bike trails and there is also an “aerodrome” for remote control planes and other small flying devices.
The 2015 Bryan Park at Guilford County Master Plan explored adding amenities such as more trails, football and lacrosse fields, RV space, picnic shelters, field spraying and a playground.
The two local governments are currently working on a master plan update that will determine what the future should hold for the park.
The upcoming updated plan will include timelines and estimated costs for future development phases.
