WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The city of Winston-Salem hopes to open its new Quarry Park by the end of July.
Parks and Recreations Director William Royston says the 12-acre park features a freshwater lake, walking and hiking trails, and a scenic overlook that gives you a great view of downtown Winston-Salem.
Royston says you can even see Pilot Mountain from the overlook on a clear day.
The city says a little bit more work has to be done before the park can open. The contractor is still working on the bathrooms and a bridge that will connect to a green way.
Royston says the city council has not officially named the park yet, but many people have adopted the unofficial name Quarry Park for now.
