Welcome Center Grand Opening at The Park at Flat Rock (Sept 1, 2015)


Flat Rock, North Carolina, September 1, 2015—The Flat Rock Park and Recreation Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce the grand opening of the new Welcome Center at The Park at Flat Rock. The ceremony will take place on Tuesday, September 15 at 5:30pm.

After opening remarks by Mayor Bob Staton, guests can take a look at the Welcome Center, which includes the Perry N. Rudnick Community Room and the spacious Welcome Center Deck, built through the generosity of Sally and Cam Boyd.

Light refreshments will be provided by the village and served by the Village Decorating Committee. Representatives from the Flat Rock Park and Recreation Foundation and the Perry N. Rudnick Endowment Fund will be present as well as members of the Boyd family.

The Welcome Center is the second feature to be developed in the park, after the perimeter trail. It will provide visitors with information about what is in the park and offer a much-needed space for park volunteers and community groups to work and conduct events. Once completely finished, it will house display cabinets and nature exhibits.  

Anyone wishing to donate towards development of the park is welcome to contribute to the Flat Rock Park and Recreation Foundation. The Flat Rock Park and Recreation Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2013 by the Village of Flat Rock, North Carolina, to help raise the funds required to fulfill the vision of a signature municipal park for the community. That vision includes opportunities for recreation, health, and education for all generations while preserving the natural beauty that draws visitors from far and wide to Western North Carolina.
