NorthGlenviewPark (formerly known as the Eddy Park) is a neighborhood park located off Seville Drive and Glen Road in Rome’s outer district. It was designed to serve the populations from the North Glenview development and from the Valley View Development off of Elmer Hill Road.
The park is surrounded by the back yards of homes to its south; by a cornfield to the north and east and by power lines then homes to the west. Because of plantings and fencing, the park is somewhat isolated from the surrounding homes.
The park was closed during the summer of 2000 due to a lack of use but was reopened for use in the summer of 2009 when significant renovations to the park occurred.
The equipment at the park include: One new main play structure (installed in 2009) and the repair of an existing play structure; a basketball court; two tennis courts with fencing; and a baseball/softball field with backstop and perimeter fencing between the cornfield and the park.
Additionally, significant tree overgrowth was removed and a series of smaller non-functional play items were removed and these areas were topsoiled and replanted with grass to provide additional green space.
