Mecklenburg County's Park and Recreation Master Plan
The Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Master Plan calls for upgrades to the Abersham/Allison/Fisher Farm properties in three phases. For Phase I, they will bid out the project in early January to demolish and remove the five areas of asphalt highlighted in red in this diagram. Once a contractor is selected, work could start in late January.
Phase II will include widening and reinforcing the current paved path through Abersham and adding a greenway through the length of Fisher Farm along the West Branch of the Rocky River. The plan is to bid out this work in the spring, and work will begin late spring/early summer. The county awaits regulatory approvals before proceeding with the bid process.
Phase III is the creation of a picnic shelter/restroom in Abersham. Currently, we are unsure of funding for this phase or a projected timeline
