Raising the quality of life


Economic development through Environmental enhancement

Why Travel to a Park? Why not Live and Work in a Park?

Our goal is to change an area located in the core city of High Point into a renewed place of natural beauty.

This plan will maximize the economic benefits of environmental enhancement to save revenue, support sustainability, attract business, create jobs, increase real estate values, reduce traffic and improve health.
