Town of Hillsborough

Gold Park

Hillsborough, NC

Benesch worked with the Town of Hillsborough in developing a Master Plan for this 26-acre park which serves as a primary park node along the town’s greenway on the Eno River. Staff and community input led to a park plan that provided predominately passive recreation opportunities. Project elements consist of a restroom/picnic shelter, playground, multipurpose field, dog park, picnic shelters, two pedestrian bridges, a wood boardwalk, 1.2 miles of natural and paved trails, parking, and infrastructure. The Master Plan for this park led to a successful PARTF grant application that resulted in a $500,000 grant for Phase One Development.
