Forsyth County officials will host a ribbon cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 14, to dedicate facility improvements at Sawnee Mountain Park (3995 Watson Rd.).
Improvements to the park include baseball/softball complex improvements, a new inclusive playground, refurbished tennis courts as well as updates to the concession stand and restrooms. The parking lot was also seal coated and restriped. A new pavilion, also a part of the renovation project, is expected to be installed at a later date.
“We are excited to unveil the new additions and renovations to Sawnee Mountain Park,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jim Pryor. “This is a growing area in west Forsyth, so are thrilled to provide more recreation opportunities, including a new large, inclusive playground, to the residents in this area of the County.”
Most amenities at the park closed for renovations on May 10 and are now open to the public.
The project budget was $3.25 million and was made available from SPLOST VIII funds. The consultant for the project was Robertson Loia Roof, PC and the general contractor is Build Line, LLC.
