The bridge work at the park all ties in with the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail and will ultimately be a significant part of it. They’re looking to possibly hold a week’s worth of activities leading up to the grand opening when everything in the park is finally open. They’re hoping mild, pleasant weather will greet Unity Park when it’s time to open.
