Hornet’s Nest Park is a key community asset and includes many amenities that residents would like to utilize. While nearly 20 percent of the Sunset/Beatties Ford CNIP area is park/greenspace, safe access to the existing parks is very limited. This project’s goal is to enhance pedestrian and bicycle connections along Sunset Road and Beatties Ford Road, and make improvements to the intersection at the entrance of the park. This will give residents in adjacent neighborhoods, as well as students and staff at Hornet’s Nest Elementary School better access by bike or foot to the park and retail at the intersection of Sunset and Beatties Ford roads. ​
