Visitors to Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, N.C., this year will notice millions of dollars worth of changes.
The park’s popular campground officially opened for its third season on Thursday (March 1). The campground underwent renovations and now features nearly 50 fully paved sites and electricity, water and sewer hookups.
The camping season itself is also longer this year.
“We are extending our season through Thanksgiving so they can enjoy the Festival of Lights. That’s something they’ve not ever been able to do before,” said Kelli Cox with Tanglewood Park.
Two miles of paved walking trails are also open. They were finished just a few weeks ago at a cost of $700,000.
About $3 million in bond money will go toward improving the pool. Within the next month, the pool should have a children’s splash area, a lazy tubing river and new pool decking, shelters and water filtration systems.
“This was given to the county, and I think it is making it a wise investment in updating it and expanding the use for everybody,” said Brenda Braswell, who enjoys the park.
The new, two-acre dog park should be open by early summer. The county donated the land for the park, which should cost about $150,000 to build.
