“Midway Park was originally constructed in 1982 and is the 2nd oldest park in Forsyth County,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jim Pryor.
“Through the years, it has received capital updates to portions of the property, but I am excited that this upgrade brings the upper baseball complex to current standards as well as a new playground and pavilion that will keep families coming for generations to come.”
Improvements and additions to the park include:
- New inclusive and accessible playground
- Laser grading and new sod on diamond fields
- New batting cages and bullpens
- New Pavilion with seating for 36
- New flooring and interior/exterior paint for Community Building
- Repaved and leveled park entrance and upper parking area
- Sealed and restriped lower parking area
The budget for the refurbishment was $3.13M and funding was provided by SPLOST VIII. The project consultant was Woolpert Design, and the contractor was Diversified Construction.
