Grand opening, concert held May 15 at the new grounds of the Alexander County Courthouse

A large crowd attended the dedication and concert at the new grounds of the Alexander County Courthouse on Sunday, May 15.

The event began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with remarks from Alexander County Commissioners Ronnie Reese, Marty Pennell, Kent Herman and Larry Yoder, as well as Taylorsville Rotary Club President Paul Sink (the club contributed approximately $68,000 for the cost of the performance stage), Taylorsville Mayor George Holleman and Ron Lewis of the Forward Foundation (the non-profit organization installed the “Charters of Freedom” in the park). Macedonian Baptist Church pastor Ty Michaux provided the invocation and “park blessing.”

After the speeches, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to officially open the park.

Chairman Ronnie Reese said it was a historic day in Alexander County. “On behalf of the Alexander County Board of Commissioners, I want to thank everyone involved in making our courthouse grounds a reality,” Reese said. “This outdoor space is something our families can enjoy for generations to come. We are delighted and proud to provide such an impressive facility to our citizens. »

During the park’s first day, local families enjoyed the park’s facilities, including the wading pool, playground, picnic shelter, and live music on the Rotary Performance Stage featuring featured Ultimate Aldean.

The Alexander County Courthouse Park, located at 101 West Main Avenue in downtown Taylorsville, is owned and operated by the Alexander County government for the citizens of Alexander County. The hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. until September 30.
