“We are incredibly excited about this donation and the opportunity it presents for us to create a unique waterfront recreation area in Badin. The park will have a regional appeal that complements the draw of Morrow Mountain State Park and Uwharrie National Forest,” Badin Mayor Anne Harwood said. “We look forward to maximizing the recreational offerings in our beautiful waterfront town.”
The town will spend the next year soliciting ideas from the community, planning for the park and securing funding for a variety of park amenities.
“Badin is a beautiful town, and we are excited about what the future holds for this property. It is a beautiful setting for a waterfront park and is sure to draw more people to Badin,” said Robyn Gross, a director of Alcoa Transformation/Asset Planning & Management.
