New amenities for Matt Community Park are expected to be done by next summer.
Forsyth County officials said the new features would include six lighted tennis courts, a pavilion and restroom facilities at the northwest Forsyth park. The new amenities will be next to the park’s existing playground.
“We are very excited to be adding these amenities to Matt Community Park,” said Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Director Jim Pryor in a news release. “The playground at the park is very popular, so adding these facilities nearby makes perfect sense.”
The work is being funded through SPLOST VII and construction is currently underway.
Some parking near the playground will be closed during the construction, though the playground will remain open.
