Major improvements to the "Dream Park" is a step closer to reality in Greenville this morning.

The Greenville City Council voted to move the project forward at last night's meeting. Dream Park is on Chestnut Street on Greenville's west side.

Officials at the meeting say they hope grants and donations can help cover the $785,000 price tag for big improvements to the park, and they'll ask the city to cover the rest of the bill.

Planners say the park will help revitalize west Greenville.

Dream Park is on Chestnut Street on Greenville's Westside.

The recreation and parks department recently adopted the "Dream Park master plan," which calls for a new playground, a spray ground - which features water jets for kids to play in during hot weather - a multi-purpose field and a picnic area. Planners say the park would help revitalize west Greenville.

Officials hope to get state and private grants for the project.

City council is scheduled to decide whether to adopt the plan at its meeting Monday night.
