Anson County’s Parks & Recreation offices in Little Park are in the process of a much-needed facelift.
Renovations to the 1970s-era building began in November, and are close to being completed in time for the pool to open in May.
For the first time in the building’s history, there is central heating and air, and the Parks & Rec staff’s offices have been completely redone, with new sheetrock, tile floors and paint. The building also has a new roof and as of last Thursday, Feb. 23, a portion of the exterior had new wood siding.
The rear of the building has also been extended by about 70 feet to allow for new locker rooms, showers and rest rooms for both men and women.
An expanded lobby area in the front of the building will also have space for meetings.
The county’s director of buildings maintenance and parks and recreation, Jeff Waisner, said the project is on schedule for completion by May.
