One of the newest cities in the Atlanta metro area allocated more than $200,000 to improving its small green spaces before the end of 2013.
A city councilwoman with Brookhaven said the city wants to make small but meaningful park improvements that park visitors can enjoy immediately.
"Last week, we planted more than 3,000 bulbs and flowers in every park. We hope these upcoming projects will only make our parks more enjoyable for everyone," said District 1 Council Member Rebecca Chase Williams.
The following is a detailed breakdown of current funds allocation per park project:
• All parks: Placement of permanent waste and recycling receptacles, including pet waste stations ($30,000)
• Murphey Candler Park: Bathroom construction and improvements; upgrades to sports fields ($65,000)
• Brookhaven Park: Construction of entry feature ($40,000)
• Lynwood Park: Renovations for the athletic facilities, bathroom and benches ($25,000)
• Blackburn Park: Pavilion renovations ($25,000)
• Ashford Park: Swing Set improvements ($10,000)
• Georgian Terrace: General improvements ($5,000)
• Briarwood Park: City will match bathroom construction fundraiser project ($15,000)
• $15,000 reserved for future allocation
Brookhaven posted the breakdown of funds on its city website. These projects are not included in park improvements that will be proposed in the anticipated parks and recreation plan, a detailed vision for the development of the parks and facilities.
