New trail, other amenities open at Rhodes Jordan Park

 

Visitors to Rhodes Jordan Park are enjoying the improvements from a major renovation project. The park now offers better lake access and enhanced recreational opportunities.

One new feature is a 1.1-mile paved multi-purpose trail and boardwalk around the perimeter of the existing 23-acre lake that connects to the existing trail and sidewalks. Other new amenities include three picnic pavilions, outdoor basketball and horseshoe courts, a restroom building, and parking area. The project also rerouted the main park drive and added lake irrigation for the sports fields.      

The approximately $7.37 million park renovation project began in 2010 and was funded by the SPLOST sales tax. The last phase of this renovation includes a new soccer complex scheduled to open this spring.

Gwinnett County and the city of Lawrenceville entered into a long-term lease contract for Rhodes Jordan Park in 1991. Since then, the park land has expanded to 162 acres and also includes youth baseball, softball and football fields, a community center, outdoor aquatic center, tennis complex, and senior center. Rhodes Jordan Park is located at 100 East Crogan Street in Lawrenceville. Learn more about County parks at www.gwinnettparks.com.
