Forsyth County officials will host a groundbreaking ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 9, for an expansion project at Lanierland Park (6115 Jot-Em-Down Rd.). The expansion project, designated as phase two in the park’s master plan, includes the following:

- Eight tennis courts
- Four pickleball courts
- Four baseball/softball fields
- Miracle League baseball/softball field
- All-inclusive playground
- Hard and soft surface trails

“We are pleased to bring these amenities to Lanierland,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jim Pryor. “With the new Miracle League Field and supporting facilities to enhance the Miracle League experience, the park will feature several different elements for everyone to enjoy.”

The consultant for the project is Lose Design, and the general contractor is Astra Group Inc. The project budget is $16.5 million and is being funded by SPLOST VIII and impact fees. The project is expected to be completed by Fall 2022. Details of phase two of the park’s master plan can be found here, and 3D images of how the park will look once completed can be found here.

Current amenities at Lanierland Park will remain open during construction with the exception of the park’s walking trails.
