Sugar Hill Greenway

Gold Mine Park. Thanks to our fabulous Public Works Department for installing an observation deck near the entrance to the mine. There are just a few more punch list items to complete before this project is complete. Grand opening is scheduled for March 20. Look for announcements coming soon.
Ridge Lake Park. The construction has begun for the new park that will be on the 22 acres the city owns off Highway 20. Consisting of a parking area, rest room building with covered seating area, a dog park, pond improvements and trails; it will be the newest place to relax and unwind. Groundbreaking was held on November 29th. Many of the amenities in the park were suggested by the public during open houses that we held in 2017 and 2018.
Grading work is well underway. Underground plumbing and electrical services are being installed. The concrete slab and footings will be poured in the next two weeks. Also, work has begun on the dam repair for the lower pond.
Gary Pirkle Park Restroom Building. Bids for construction have been received and are being evaluated for a restroom building to serve the new fields on the South side of the park. They will incorporate 7 unisex stalls and a water bottle filling station.
Bowl Pond Improvements. Intended to make this amenity more stable and usable, these improvements include replacing the failed outlet that regulates pond water level and prevents flooding, a new pavilion area for events, congregating or just relaxing. It will also have a new parking area that will serve as a load in area for concerts and performances.
Construction is well underway. The outlet control structure has been installed. Also, the pipes to control the level of water in the pond are in place. Work on the wall, sidewalk and terraces will begin next. Grading for the parking area will start after that and will reduce the large dirt pile down to final grade.
Alton Tucker Blvd Extension. The survey work is complete and design work is well underway for an extension of Alton Tucker Blvd. This project will improve the intersection of Level Creek Rd and West Broad Street, as well as extending Alton Tucker to Highway 20 at the east end of the E Center property. When design work is complete, we will then advertise for a construction partner. Bid documents should be ready in March.
