Citizens are invited to the final presentation of the master plan for developing an abandoned quarry south of Reynolds Park Road as a recreation area. The presentation will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 13, at the W.R. Anderson Jr. Recreation Center, 2450 Reynolds Park Road.
Antonio Leung of Leung Planning and Design will present recommendations for opening the 200-acre site for public use while incorporating measures to conserve the unique ecosystem that has developed in and around the water bodies in the old quarry. Potential uses could include botanical gardens, hiking and biking trails, a disc golf course, picnic pavilions and a quarry scenic overlook. Vulcan Materials donated the abandoned quarry to the city in 1997.
