Groundbreaking held in Greenville for series of mini pocket parks

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A series of mini pocket parks are coming to Greenville to promote learning as fun.

The project kicked off Monday morning with the groundbreaking of the Live United Courtyard on West 4th Street near Evans.

It’s the starting point of a trail that will connect several mini parks to promote physical activity and learning for young people around downtown.

Mayor Allen Thomas says this is just the start of the first trail.

“There will be multiple trails all throughout Greenville; several in the uptown area, also on the greenway, and every corner of Greenville,” explained Allan Thomas, Greenville Mayor. “This will be one more added value for parents and kids things to do across the city. So it’s not just going to the park, but a chance to really learn together.

This first part of a “yellow brick road to learning” is expected to open before the end of the year.
