Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park Playground Area Closure

MLK Playground

The playground at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park at 1120 Hillsborough Road will be closed on Thursday, Jan. 12, and will re-open the afternoon of Friday, Jan. 13, while the Public Works Department conducts maintenance.

Due to degradation of some of the natural wood material, two of the play features pose a safety hazard and will be removed.  The Town is working with vendors to identify replacement options that are comparable to the existing amenities, but that will have a longer lifespan to be enjoyed for many years to come.  Once these replacements are ready to be installed, we will provide an update on the installation schedule.

If you have any questions, please contact the Recreation, Parks & Cultural Resources Facilities Supervisor at 919-918-7384.
