CLUB DRIVE PARK PHASE TWO CONSTRUCTION STARTS SOON
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Dec. 19, 2017) – Gwinnett commissioners approved a million dollar contract Tuesday to start construction on an expansion of Club Drive Park near Lawrenceville.
Commissioner Jace Brooks explained that Phase Two is on 2.3 acres of County-owned land across the street from the current 35-acre park at 3330 Club Drive. The property is on the east side of Rolling Ridge Road and extends from Club Drive to Sweetwater Creek.
The project will include a new parking lot accessed from Rolling Ridge Road with 35 parking spaces and a half-acre lawn space surrounded by a paved walking loop. Amenities will include three swing sets, a bike rack, a picnic shelter with tables and grill, two adult swings and an overlook deck with seating.
A walk and boardwalk aligned with the existing pedestrian crossing on Club Drive will take pedestrians to the walking loop from the Club Drive sidewalk. Drainage from the parking lot will flow through a landscaped retention pond before being released into the Sweetwater Creek drainage basin.
The site will also serve as a trailhead for a planned future greenway south along Sweetwater Creek.
Chairman Charlotte Nash said the contract is funded by the 2014 SPLOST Program.
