Blackwood Farm Park will be closed beginning July 5, 2021 for construction. Due to supply constraint issues construction is taking longer than originally estimated (12 months). The park remains closed until all work is completed. The Board of County Commissioners received an update on the park at their September 20, 2022 meeting. If you would like to receive updates on the park during construction please subscribe to the Orange County Newsletter here: https://www.co.orange.nc.us/list.aspx?ListID=324.
