Welcome to the Salisbury City Park!
City Park Description: The Salisbury City Park is the largest municipal park within the City limits. It encompasses 113 acres of land along Beaver Dam Creek from Snow Hill Rd to Beaglin Park Dr.
Some of the attractions located within the park:
The Salisbury Community Band Performs its summer concert series annually in the historic bandstand. In the winter, the west side of the park is the site of the "Winter Wonderland" display of lights.
History of the City Park
The area that encompasses the Salisbury City Park was once covered by Humphrey’s Lake. The City Park owes its existence to the failure of the Humphrey’s Lake mill dam on May 29, 1909. After the lake was drained, the area east of the railroad bridge was an abandoned wasteland. In 1925, Salisbury Mayor Thomas L Parker Sr. negotiated the purchase of the 53 acre exposed lake bottom for $5000, in order to construct a new municipal water plant and well field.
City Park Committee
The City Park Committee (CPC), established by the City of Salisbury, serves as an advisory body to the Mayor and City Council concerning all matters pertaining to the City Park. The purpose of this committee is to assist the City of Salisbury in the operation, management and promotion of the City Park for the enjoyment of the citizens of Salisbury and the surrounding region.
