LeBauer City Park (Downtown Greensboro)

Recommended Posts

Construction on LeBauer City Park is well underway with a set opening date later this summer. The large sculpture over the concert lawn has been revealed and will be lit at night time.

In addition,  a small performing arts venue is under construction next to the future LeBauer Park. The venue will be added on to the Greensboro Cultural Arts Center and is part of an emerging cultural district which includes the cultural arts center, the main library, the children's museum, the Greensboro Historical Museum, the future Stevens Tanger Center for the Performing Arts, Center - City Park and the future LeBauer Park ties all these cultural attractions together.

LeBauer Park update

The steel towers for the massive art sculpture over the concert lawn have been erected. The sculpture will glow at night. It will be one of a kind for North Carolina. Greensboro has really stepped up its game with high quality urban parks. with Center-City Park across the street its really going to feel like one big park and both parks were financed privately without city tax dollars thanks to non-profit organizations and very generous citizens. In fact most of downtown recent civic projects have been financed privately like the ballpark and even the future Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts across the street from LeBauer Park. Half of the money for the $65 million venue was donated by wealthy individuals and companies with the rest being financed with hotel/motel tax and user fees.  Greensboro has figured out a way to build these transformative projects without taxpayer bonds. Otherwise they wouldn't happen.

LeBauer City Park is coming along nicely. The grand opening is next month and the sculpture over the seating lawn has been raised. I Cant wait to see it lit at night! The park will be open in time for the National Folk Festival. The seating lawn and stage will likely be one of the stage locations for the musical performances.

I was able to take some pictures of LeBauer Park. I'll take more when I have time. LeBauer Park constrast with Center-City Park across the street. LeBauer Park is more of an activity park thats a little less formal than Center-City Park. There will be programmed events in the park to keep people coming.

across the street from the restaurant/cafe plaza is a realigned street which use to be part of Summit Ave and will now be called Brenner Place, the address of the future Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts. Looks like they have updated the street lighting as well.

WOW this is amazing! I stopped by LeBauer Park tonight and they have the sculpture lit. I must say as I walked through the park tonight, I felt like I wasn't in Greensboro. Totally different experience at night. Here are some pictures I took. The sculpture has 35 miles of fiber.

big plans for LeBauer Park...not just a pretty park
