A public hearing will be held this month to give county residents an opportunity to comment on the final design of a new public park planned for development just southwest of Seaford.
The 7 p.m. meeting at the Nanticoke Senior Center, 1001 W. Locust St. in Seaford, on Feb. 21 will include a presentation of several options for the design of the 20-acre park off of Woodland Road.
The park will be created on a portion of the former Woodland Golf Course, which the county purchased in 2010 in preparation for the Nanticoke River dredging project, which concluded this month.
The remaining 21 acres of the former golf course is being used to hold the roughly 86,000 cubic yards of deposit material dredged from the river to deepen the main channel from 9 to 12 feet.
Preliminary designs for Woodland Park, based in part on public input, were presented to the county last summer. Those plans called for a low-impact park that would feature a natural wildlife setting and trails for biking and walking.
