BACKGROUND:
On November 8, 2016, City of Greensboro voters approved a Parks and Recreation bond referendum in the amount of $34,500,000 and of that, $5,000,000 was allocated for the initial development of the Battleground Parks District (BPD).

On July 17, 2017, City Council approved a contract in the amount of $615,000, which provided funding toward schematic and design development of Phase I and parking lot expansion to support the Science Center and the BPD. The parking lot expansion project was completed in 2018 and the conceptual designs depicting Phase I elements, which include enhancements to the hillside between Country Park and the Science Center, a sky walk and zip line, promenade, corporate shelter, and other amenities, were completed in January 2019.
