The Greenway is growing

 

With help from a $100,000 Recreation Trails Grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Lilburn's greenway trail system is growing.

The Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation project will create a bike and pedestrian link from the Camp Creek Greenway to Lions Club Park, which is currently undergoing renovations. The new 0.8-mile trail will connect to the 2-mile Camp Creek Greenway trail built by the City of Lilburn. The construction includes a new 700-foot boardwalk, asphalt trail and a 60-foot long concrete bridge underpass at Rockbridge Road along Camp Creek.

Future plans include extending the trail south to Harmony Grove Park through the Camp Creek Greenspace at Lions Club Park.

Astra Group Inc. was the low bidder at $260,000. Construction is expected to take about 90 days. Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) program funds will cover the remaining cost to enhance the Gwinnett Greenways program.
