Friends of Hickory to break ground on new park

Friends of Hickory will celebrate the groundbreaking of a visionary new park in Downtown Hickory on Wednesday, May 11 at noon.  The park, located just west of Union Square on the corner of Third Street and Main Avenue NW, is the culmination of over two years of planning and fundraising by the non-profit group. 

Friends of Hickory board members collaborated with representatives from Lowes Foods, CommScope, and Corning, as well as additional donors, to symbolically transform the present overflow parking lot into a new community gathering space. “The front door of any city is its downtown,” says Co-Chair and Founder, Allison Holtzman. “We want to make a strong first impression by highlighting the many strengths of Hickory’s community and region.”
