Farmington Community Center and Nature Park received a Recreational Trails Program Grant for 2019.

The Farmington Community Association board will use the funds to build a gravel parking lot to accommodate 60 vehicles, a pump track (mountain biking practice track) and to expand the hiking and biking trails already on the 60-acre Farmington Nature Park.

At the same time, the Farmington Disc Golf Course will be built on the property and the goal is to open these new park amenities between late spring and early fall of 2019.

“Now we need your help to make these dreams a reality,” said Allyson Sawtelle. “The grant includes many hours of in-kind volunteer labor and we are seeking folks who share the vision of creating this green space for recreation that will be available for the public to enjoy.”

An organizational meeting of interested individuals will be held on Thursday, Nov. 15 at Farmington Community Center, 1723 Farmington Road, Mocksville at 6 p.m. Dinner will be provided to all attendees who will be able to see the master plan and meet with the contracted trail builder, Chris “Shrimper” Khare and the disc golf course designer, Drew Smith.

In addition to needing people who want to be a part of these projects, there are equipment needs for clearing the trails (mini-excavator, Bobcat, ATV with trailer). If willing to lend any of these items or to volunteer for the trail building, but can’t attend the meeting, contact Sawtelle at (336) 655-2700.

Here is an excerpt from the letter from the NC Department of Natural & Cultural Resources that announced the awarding of grant funds:

“We have also been fortunate to have received in kind donations of materials from Vulcan Materials Company, Mideast Division. They have donated enough gravel to create the entire parking area, which will be built by McDaniel Grading & Hauling, Inc. Also, Davie County Recreation & Parks granted the funds to purchase a solar powered entrance gate and signage for the Park and Davie County Chamber of Commerce/Tourism donated $5,000 towards the Disc Golf Course. The Davie Community Foundation donated the funds for the Disc Golf Course design.

If you or your business want to be a part of this new green space in Davie County, but can’t volunteer time, we are seeking permanent hole sponsors for the Disc Golf Course. Contact Sawtelle if you have an interest in being a hole sponsor.By Mike Barnhardt
