Village Park access closed for repairs

Kannapolis’ Village Park main access drive will be closed beginning Monday for improvements to the parking lot and access drive. The closure will likely remain until May 28.
Weekday park building access and temporary parking will be available via the Kannapolis Cemetery. There will be directional signage posted on West C Street.
Weekend parking will be available near the YMCA on West C Street, and directional signage will guide drivers. All shelter users and park visitors on the weekend should use the lots near the YMCA.
The closure is part of a beautification project to enhance the parking lot, lighting and roadways of the Kannapolis Cemetery and entrance into Village Park. Improvements will include grading and widening of the roadway, entrance monuments, fencing along the perimeter of the property, new lighting and paving for the parking lot, landscape islands, and more.
The city’s cemetery is regarded as one of the most important historical sites in Kannapolis, and these necessary improvements will help enhance and preserve the dignity and beauty of the land for years to come.
With the popularity of Village Park and the Summer Entertainment Series, the project will also provide easier access and flow for residents and visitors to enjoy all the park has to offer.
The roadways and parking lot will be open in time for the first Waste Management Summer Entertainment Series concert on Saturday, June 4. More information on the summer events can be found at http://www.cityofkannapolis.com/summerevents
For any questions contact Kannapolis Parks and Recreation at 704-920-4340.
