So I found a page for the Long Range Planning for the NC Parks system.

There is a park proposed as part of New Parks for a New Century in northern Pitt County. Any idea what or where exactly this could be?

It's called the Bethel-Grindle Hardwood Flats

My guess is in this area:
Google Maps

Default Downtown Greenville Pics

http://photobucket.com/downtowngreenvillenc


The week before Easter I had started a photo project of downtown Greenville in B&W 35mm film. I encountered a camera issue and then a lab disaster (which required a partial do-over), but I finally finished a few days ago. I had started this project just before we had our ballpark/revitalization discussion. This album includes all of downtown, but there are many shots of the areas which we discussed. The color photos towards the end are add-ons from my iPhone, as I had run through my B&W film supply. I may just go digital soon, so I didn't want to buy more film. I hope you enjoy. Thanks.

Cool stuff.

One this is true about that map I posted. There is a huge void of state parks around Greenville, which sucks. I would love to see more of the Tar River banks turned into a state park.

That photo of the Pugh's Tire sign is EVERYTHING!

Well done!

I would give you some rep points for the pictures but it won't let me, but anyways those pictures were awesome and very urban. They helped me realize that Greenville may need to step away from trying to preserve every building Downtown, some of them just aren't worth it to me. We should brand and preserve Evans Street as our Main Street and attempt to make the surrounding streets more pedestrian friendly.

Thank you! And I agree about not saving everything. I'm more into selective preservation.

It would be A OK with me if a tornado came through and selectively took out all the buildings around 5th/Cotanche/Evans
