WESLEY CHAPEL – The Wesley Village Chapel opened a fenced-in playground on December 8 in Dogwood Park.

The playground is located near the parking lot. It includes two targeted play areas: one for children from 2 to 4 years old and one for children from 5 to 12 years old). The playground includes swings and a carousel for group play.

“A playground has been on our radar for a long time,” said John Lepke, chair of the village parks and recreation committee. “While we could have done something a little earlier, we wanted something that the village could be proud of. I really think our patience has paid off. We are grateful for the support of our Village Council and for the hard work and dedication of our wonderful team of volunteers who sit on the Parks and Recreation Committee.

The village contracted with Carolina Recreation & Design, based in Mooresville, to build the playground.

Dogwood Park is open daily from dawn to dusk at 121 Lester Davis Road, Waxhaw.

Other park amenities include paved and unpaved trails, a dog park, picnic / grill sites, fishing pier, amphitheater, small free library, geocaching, and community events held throughout. of the year.

Use of the playground should comply with state guidelines for social distancing, group size, and face coverings. The village is encouraging the community to disinfect their hands before and after play to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
