Greenville’s Maude Bryan Park is due for some revitalization and city leaders and community members have begun working to that end.
Mayor Errick Simmons on Tuesday morning was at Maude Bryan Park to discuss improvements soon to be made to the park.
“This project wouldn’t have happened without our good partners, ruralists, Greater Greenville Housing and our councilman in this area and our park commissioner Corey Holmes,” Simmons said.
Improvements to the park will include the playground equipment, restoring the bathrooms, pavilion, as well as the basketball court and baseball fields.
Simmons commended Councilman James Wilson for his commitment to the $130,000 project.
“We want to thank Councilman Wilson, who has done a wonderful job on infrastructure, spending close to two million dollars over the last two to three years and also when it comes to recreation and social equity,” Simmons said.
Greater Greenville Housing & Revitalization CEO Daniel Boggs thanked Wilson and city leaders as well for their passion and dedication to restoring the community and Maude Bryan Park.
“We’re just glad to be a part of the process and help them revitalize this community and this park within this ward,” Boggs said.
A cheerful Wilson said he was especially proud to be able to announce the park’s baseball and basketball amenities would be restored.
“Finally, there will be basketball back in the park,” he happily said.
“I can’t thank everyone enough, especially Greater Greenville Housing, for what they’ve done and the Rotary Club and everyone that has participated to help bring this park back,” he said. “We’ve worked and waited so long to get this done so finally, we’ll have it back.”
