Amphitheater goes up in South Hill

South Boston News
The new amphitheater at Centennial Park
SoVaNow.com / June 12, 2013
Residents of South Hill will soon have another spot to enjoy music, host weddings, and gather for entertainment, town officials proclaimed during Monday night’s South Hill Town Council meeting.

Town official Bill WIlson gave an updated account of the progress on the new amphitheater at Centennial Park, where construction is under way.

Town Manager Kim Callis said that he expects the amphitheater to be a boost for South Hill.

“Once it’s finished we’ll have a real gem,” said Callis. “We’ll be able to have outdoor events, concerts, even weddings out there.”

The Town’s maintenance crews got the structure started last week after a slow start.

“It’s been so wet that we haven’t been able to pour the stage footings,” said Callis. “But we got the columns up and it is looking great.”

The town will not be putting in seats or benches, but will allow guests to bring blankets and chairs of their own for entertainment events.

Callis said that the town hopes to have the project completed by Labor Day, but noted that weather conditions will play a major role in the progress of the project.

This is all part of the Town’s renovation of Centennial Park in the heart of South Hill. The park got a facelift last year when town workers upgraded the old concession stand by converting it into a new pavilion and upgrading outdated playground equipment.
