by YES! Weekly staff

Winston-Salem residents are invited to join Mayor Allen Joines and members of the City Council as they hold groundbreaking ceremonies Feb. 26 for Quarry Park and Feb. 25 for the District 3 Police Station. The groundbreaking for Quarry Park will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, at 2450 Reynolds Park Road. The park is being developed around the former Vulcan quarry and will include overlooks, an observation pier, bathrooms, green space, and natural auditorium and stage, parking lots and an entrance road. The project also includes construction of the Waughtown Greenway connector, which will pass through the new park and connect the Waughtown area to the Peachtree Greenway, providing access to Reynolds Park and the William R. Anderson Jr. Recreation Center. The groundbreaking for the District 3 Police Station will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, at the corner of Summerset Drive and Hillcrest Center Circle, off South Stratford Road. The station will have approximately 10,000 square feet and include offices, meeting rooms, showers, restrooms, a locker room for officers, a break room and parking lot. Voters approved $5 million for Quarry Park and the Waughtown Connector, and $3.96 million for the District 3 Police Station, in the November 2014 bond referendum.
