PROVO — Provo will officially open its new 7.16-acre Sherwood Hillside Park, 4500 N. Foothill Drive, at a ribbon-cutting celebration at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 29.

The park, which has been under construction for about a year, will feature two tennis courts, two pavilions, a fire pit, playground equipment, rest rooms and a 10-foot-wide walking trail that wanders around the park.

Developer LeGrande Woolstenhulme donated the property to the city to develop the park. The city worked closely with a neighborhood committee that had significant input into the park's design.

The event is free to the public.
