Spring has Come Early to DPR

Phase 1 of New Park Near Bailey Springs Neighborhood Underway


On February 27, 2018, the Davidson Board of Commissioners voted to use $393,000 in park reserve funds and $131,000 from our fund balance to begin the construction of Phase 1 of the new park located along Robert Walker Drive and Bradford Park Drive at the edge of the Bailey Springs neighborhood. The plans for this new park were developed after receiving feedback at citizen input sessions and work done by the livability board. Phase 1 will include a basketball court, two tennis courts, and a playground. Work will be completed this summer. More information is available here.
