The City of Clemson Invites the Community to Two Park Celebrations 

The City of Clemson has been hard at work upgrading two local parks: Nettles Park and Dawson Park. They are ready to unveil their changes with two celebrations happening next week. Each event will include fun for the whole family and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. We hope that Clemson and the surrounding areas come out to enjoy the festivities! 

Celebrate Community and Play: The Grand Re-Opening of William Kilgore Playground at Nettles Park

The community is cordially invited to join the City of Clemson in celebrating the grand re-opening of the William Kilgore Playground at Nettles Park (102 Nettles Park Rd.) on April 24th, 2024, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. This much-anticipated event marks the culmination of extensive renovations to create a more inclusive, safe, and fun environment for children of all ages and abilities. The ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 3:30 pm.

The William Kilgore Playground has been a treasured asset of Nettles Park, fostering countless memories and moments of joy. Its revitalization includes new, state-of-the-art play equipment designed to engage children in imaginative and physical play and upgraded safety features that give peace of mind to parents and guardians.

In addition to the ribbon-cutting, the grand re-opening will feature a variety of family-friendly activities, including a vision casting time capsule, and yard games. Guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments and connect with community leaders and volunteers who have made this project possible. This event is a celebration of the playground’s physical transformation and a testament to the community’s dedication to happy and healthy families.

The city of Clemson extends its heartfelt thanks to all the staff, volunteers, and community members whose support and dedication have been instrumental in bringing this project to fruition. Your commitment ensured that the William Kilgore Playground will continue to be a vibrant, welcoming space for children and families for years to come.

Join us on this special day to cut the ribbon, play, and create new memories. The grand re-opening of the William Kilgore Playground at Nettles Park is more than an event; it is a celebration of community, childhood, and the joy of play. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to this momentous occasion.
