VIDEO: Happening in Cabarrus This Week, April 8
April 8, 2018 --CTW takes a break with spring-breakers at Frank Liske Park in Concord. Located in the central part of Cabarrus County, this beautiful 200-acre park was once a working farm operated by the Stonewall Jackson Training School. The park was dedicated to Liske, who served the school for 48 years and was instrumental in acquiring the land for lease from the state for the development of the park.
You can fill up your whole day at Frank Liske with the many amenities offered. Just opened this week for spring and summer, the paddle boats and mini-golf course are a family-favorite.
Take a cruise around the lake on a paddle boat for $2 per person, per half hour. Children ages 5 and younger can ride free with a paying adult. A round of miniature golf is only $2 per person, per game. Children ages 5 and younger can play free with a paying adult. Miniature golf and the paddle boats are open Saturdays and Sundays from noon until 7 p.m.
If you want to stay on dry land, the lake is the perfect place to drop a line. Fishing is available from park opening to closing. Cost for a fishing permit is $1. Children ages 12 and younger may fish for free.
Other park amenities include an 18-hole disc golf course, lighted tennis courts, picnic shelters, walking, fitness, and nature trails. It has a softball complex with lighted fields, and an 11-field soccer complex with three lighted fields. The park itself is also managed as a wildlife and nature preserve.
Frank Liske Park is located at 4001 Stough Road and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, visit www.cabarruscounty.us/parks or call 704-920-3484.
