dowdy’s park to be given new life
Dowdy’s Amusement Park in Nags Head was a favorite for generations, but has been closed and sitting vacant for years. Happily, the Town of Nags Head purchased the property and has been developing ideas to give the space a new life in the community. Rob Morris’s article on the Outer Banks Voice reveals the concepts the Town is considering.
“Three concepts featuring open spaces, children’s play areas, a pavilion and public art will be tapped to create a final plan for Dowdy’s Park in Nags Head.
The concepts were presented at an open house Tuesday night led by consultants hired by the town and a committee that has been meeting for a year on transforming the old Dowdy’s amusement park property across from the YMCA.
Any one of the ideas could stand on its own, but Chris DeWitt with VHB Inc., the company planning the park along with Albemarle & Associates, said an updated concept presented to the town’s Board of Commissioners next month will probably be a hybrid of the three.”
