• I was inquiring about the McFee Park addition: when will this be open? How long has the Town been working on McFee Park, and how much money have they spent? That’s what I’m concerned about.

EDITOR’S NOTE: McFee Park Phase 3 costs $7.7 million according to Wendy Smith, Town of Farragut Public Relations & Marketing coordinator — featuring a Great Lawn, tennis courts, a basketball court, restroom pavilion, pedestrian facilities and an access road.

As for its opening, “We don’t have a firm opening date, but are hoping for spring,” Smith stated in a press release. “According to the Engineering Department, the work is 98 percent done, but we can’t predict how fast the final projects will progress during winter months.”

Work on this phase began in April 2020.
