The Green Hill Park Equestrian Center board has released the plan to upgrade arena footing at the park and is seeking donations to help cover the costs.
The five-phase plan is scheduled to begin this fall with regrading Arena 2 at a cost of $25,000. The project has received $5,000 in Roanoke County Capital Improvement Incentive Fund grant money. Donations also are being collected for this phase. There are a few options for donating to the project.

Phase II involves upgrading the actual footing in Arena 2. The committee is accepting recommendations for footing options.

And the final phase is the replacement of the fencing for Arenas 1 and 2.
