Planning Underway for Newest Phase of Little Mulberry Park
New section to include a playground, pavilion and an 18-hole disc golf course.
As early as next year, construction could begin on the newest phase of Little Mulberry Park.
Grant Guess, Division Director of Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation (GCPR) Project Administration, said planning is currently underway for the new section.
“We’re working on the design right now,” he said.
The area will include approximately 140 parking spaces, a pavilion, restroom facilities, trail access and a 19.4-acre, 18-hole disc golf course. The disc golf course will be the third in Gwinnett. The existing courses are located at Alexander Park in Lawrenceville and Lenora Park in Snellville.
The entrance to the new section will be located on Hog Mountain Road between Patrick Road and Greenside Court, Guess said, though the exact spot has not yet been determined. Guess said GCPR is working with the Gwinnett Department of Transportation regarding placement of the entrance as well as future sidewalk plans.
Guess explained that funding for the park addition should be available in 2013, but is contingent upon the approval of GCPR’s budget.
