Sponsor Mural Dedicated at the GAP

Posted July 5, 2023



Granville County Commissioners and staff gathered with local community partners to dedicate the new sponsor mural at the Granville Athletic Park (GAP) on June 26. The mural is located on the restroom shelter facility in Phase III of the park, adjacent to the accessible playground, tennis and sand volleyball courts, and several holes of the disc golf course.


“Today we are unveiling a mural that will serve not just as recognition for our sponsors, but a testament to the strength of Granville County and the desire by all of those named to make our community a better place to live,” said Chair of the Granville County Board of Commissioners, Russ May. “This mural will add to the beauty of our park while also encouraging others in the future to show the same dedication to their community that these sponsors have.”


The sponsors included on the unveiled mural were Carolina Sunrock, Duke Energy, Granville Health System, Hicks & Koinis, PLLC, Bailey Farms, Inc., and Paul and Jane Reeder.


Several spaces on the mural are still available. There are four sponsorship levels available at multiple price points ranging from $1,000 to $7,500. Each tier offers a different level of prominence and visibility on the mural to allow a business or family donation to be permanently recognized and featured for the thousands of visitors that visit the GAP each year.

Since opening in 2004, the GAP has truly become the crown jewel recreational complex for Granville County residents. The park consists of miles of paved walking trails, an 18-hole disc golf course that weaves through tall pines and hardwoods, ball fields framed by foliage, an outdoor amphitheater perfect for showcasing special performances in the open air, and an outdoor classroom surrounded by plant life and sunshine.  Other features at the GAP include numerous amenities like the large sports pavilion, picnic shelters, children’s musical sound garden, outdoor fitness equipment, spray park, and a Storywalk® display. Granville County is currently undertaking a recreation master plan, which will guide future planning and development of recreational spaces for the public beyond the GAP.
