Here’s when you can give input for Central, Matt parks plans
Central park

Forsyth County’s Parks and Recreation Department is hoping to hear from local residents about what they’d like to see at two recreation centers.

Parks officials are hosting four meetings, two for each park, to get public input on future amenities for Central Park’s and Matt Community Park’s recreation centers.

The first two meetings will be for the plans at Central Park, 2300 Keith Bridge Road, from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, March 10 and 5-7 p.m., Thursday, March 12, where visitors can drop-in to let staff and consultants know what amenities should be provided by the Forsyth County Senior Services Department, which is moving to the rec center.

“These meetings are a great opportunity for residents to provide their thoughts on the programming that we can offer at this great facility for adults 55-plus in the community,” said Director of Senior Services Ruthie Brew.

From 4-6 p.m., Monday, March 16, at the Sawnee Park Community Building, 3995 Watson Road, and 6-8 p.m., Tuesday, March 17, at Coal Mountain Park Community Building, 3560 Settingdown Road, visitors can also drop-in to discuss plans for the future Matt Community Park Recreation Center, 6555 Wallace Tatum Road.

Lists of current amenities for both parks and online surveys for both projects – which will close on Friday, March 20 for Central and Tuesday, March 24 for Matt – are available at
