What's Happening at Jimmie I. Barber Park
Construction has begun on Barber Park Phase II, which will include a 7,600 square foot community building that will house a Memorial to the Women of Greensboro and meeting space. The $3 million construction project was funded in part by an $865,000 donation from the estate of Ruth Wicker to build the memorial. It is expected to be completed in spring 2017. To date, the City has invested nearly $10 million in Barber Park.
