Brook Run Multi-Use Trail
In late 2011, the City was awarded a $100,000 Recreational Trail Grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to build the first phase of the Brook Run Park Trail. The trail will begin at the front of the park by the Children’s Adventure Garden and create the first half of an eventual perimeter loop - connecting the park’s many amenities.
In May 2012, the City approved a contract for the design-build of this first phase of the trail and construction is scheduled to begin this fall. The second and final phase of the trail is planned for design-build in 2013 and the City has been awarded a second DNR Recreational Trails Grant to use towards the completion of this project.
Multi-use trails are linear open spaces established along a natural
corridors, converted to a recreational use for pedestrian and bicycle
