DANVILLE (WSLS10) - One of Danville's most popular parks is open again.

On Thursday, city leaders and members of Duke Energy held a ribbon cutting at Abreu-Grogan Park.

Duke Energy spent the past couple of months performing $500,000 worth of upgrades to the park.This was a way to thank the city for allowing the company to use the park as a staging area during the coal ash spill.

The upgrades include an expanded fishing platform, a new boat dock and making the park more handicap accessible.

"Today, thanks to Duke Energy, you see a much better park; a more usable park," Danville Mayor Sherman Saunders emphasized.

Duke Energy also repaved the parking lot in July 2014 after using the park as a staging area.
