AYDEN, N.C. (WNCT) – Families took advantage of the weather at Celebrate the Park Day Saturday in Ayden.
It took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Ayden District Park and is the fundraising drive kick-off for the Arts and Recreation Foundation of Ayden.
Kids got to play around on the playground, inflatables, and the splash pad.
Chairperson Linda Creech says all the money raised will fund expansion at the park.
“This park is not finished. What you see here is only phase one of our park. We have two more phases that we’re trying to get complete. Phase two is going to include a four field baseball complex and then the next portion that we want to do is our amphitheater,” Creech said.
The foundation plans to conduct more fundraisers this summer to raise money for the additions to the park.
