Cary plans triple celebration of public projects

Posted October 31, 2008 4:15 p.m. EDT

— The Town of Cary will celebrate the completion of three public projects Saturday.

The party begins at Kids Together Park at 2 p.m., where Mayor Harold Weinbrecht will rename the park in honor of Marla Dorrel, a former member of town council who advocated for improvements at the park and playground.

Weinbrecht will then lead a parade to the pedestrian bridge over U.S. Highway 1/64 to dedicate the sculpted leaves of artist Michael Stutz that decorate the bridge.

The town will also mark the completion of the Hinshaw Greenway Extension which connects MacDonald Woods Park to the newly-christened Marla Dorrel Park.
