Gastonia breaks ground on Linwood Springs Park


The former Linwood Springs Golf Course is set to become Linwood Springs Park. The park will be located on 140 acres near Linwood Road and Crowders Mountain State Park.

“This important project is moving forward and we are excited to offer more outdoor amenities for our residents to enjoy,” said Mayor Walker E. Reid in a statement. “When completed, Linwood Springs Park will be a regional Parks and Recreation destination that will complement all of the great things at Crowders Mountain State Park and highlight the diversity of our city.” 

The more immediate phase of the park renovations will include repairing asphalt-paved trails, repair of existing bridges and recreation vehicle sites with water, sewer and power connections. There also are plans for: a dog park, an  18-hole disc golf course, fishing ponds, playgrounds, and sand volleyball courts.

Future projects could include event venue facilities, primitive camp sites, a ropes course, zip lines, and other complementary amenities to Crowders Mountain State Park.
