The Town began a Master Planning process for Harrisburg Park in 2017. Below is a series of maps, schematics and the overall Park Master Plan Study that depicts what this project involves, and how it will look once complete.

The core features of this park renovation and expansion will include an amphitheater, six multi-purpose fields, splash pad, walking/biking trails and a build site for a recreation center. Current discussions, while not finalized, are focused on the Harrisburg YMCA relocating to this location. Harrisburg Park, as we know it today is 37 acres in size. Once the project is complete, it will be approximately 67 acres in size, this having been made possible through a land acquisition to the west of the property in 2016. For detailed information about this project, please read through the Park Master Plan document, for questions, please call or email Daniel Stines: 704-607-1535 or
