Passive-use Park Developed to Serve Powder Springs Community
Following the construction of Richard D. Sailors Parkway, the City of Powder Springs used land that remained between the parkway and the Silver Comet Trail to create a passive-use park. Funded with a combination of SPLOST money and impact fees, Phase 1 of the park features a new parking lot, landscaping, concession and restroom building, playground, senior exercise and special needs facility, 28-foot climbing net, parking lot addition, and covered basketball court. The development of a skate park is currently underway as a part of the next phase of the park.
The next phases of the park will include a dog park, trail head, trails, parking, boardwalk, open fields, and a wetland learning center. The entire property spans 41 acres. Croy’s services included site assessment, surveying, master planning, site design, landscape and hardscape planning, construction services, and program management.
