Brookhaven breaks ground on Georgian Hills Park Phase I
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brookhaven, GA, Sept. 7, 2017 – The City of Brookhaven broke ground on Phase 1 of improvements to Georgian Hills Park on Thursday.
“Today’s event is the latest chapter in our ‘Summer of Progress,’ and the work will not end as fall approaches,” said Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst.
In July, the Brookhaven City Council approved the first phase of improvements to the 3.6-acre park that will include an open space field with Bermuda turf, an irrigation system and a walking trail that extends around the open space field. A playground, picnic shelter, and an outdoor basketball half-court will also be constructed. Infrastructure enhancements at this location will also include a redesigned parking lot and improvements to the sidewalk that runs along Clairmont Road. The total cost of these improvements is $1,221,118.24. The work is being completed by Pro Building Systems.
This project is the first of two major park upgrades kicking off in September. On Sept. 28, the City will celebrate a groundbreaking for Murphey Candler Park’s future open space field.
Brookhaven Parks & Recreation Director Brian Borden, Pro Building Systems Vice President Jim Gallo, District 2 Councilman John Park, Mayor John Ernst, Pro Building President Eddie Mock, Brookhaven Economic Development Director Shirlynn Brownell and Pro Building Project Manager John Sheehan break ground at Georgian Hills Park.
