A message from Hugh Saxon, Asst. City Manager:
Glenlake Park Update
Construction of the Glenlake Park improvements has been delayed significantly by last year’s weather, especially the near record rainfall. Presently, completion of the work is expected in April, 2010.
A master plan of improvements to Glenlake Park was approved by the City Commissioners in February, 2008, after an extensive public involvement process. A new bathhouse was opened in June 2009.
Work on the rest of Phase 1 of the park improvements started in March, 2009. New walking trails, pedestrian bridges, a new multi-purpose pavilion, improved dog park, and renovated athletic fields will provide a wide variety of activities in the park and enhance active living opportunities for Decatur residents. A restored stream corridor and several new storm drainage improvements will improve water quality, help reduce downstream flooding and allow the stream to become an integral part of the park experience.
The total project budget is $3 million from the Capital Bond Fund. The Glenlake Park Improvements were designed by jB+a Landscape Architects of Atlanta. The general contractor for the Glenlake Park Improvements is Sports Turf Company of Whitesburg.
