78: Southeast Clarke Park Enhancements

Project Description from submission form

The Mayor and Commission approved Southeast Clarke Park Master Plan takes a comprehensive and unified approach to adding much-needed facilities for the benefit of Athens-Clarke County Citizens.  It provides a roadmap for the future development and relevance of the park for today and future generations.  In order to fulfill this vision, stakeholders representing youth through seniors from every socioeconomic background have partnered to promote the construction of the following facilities;

(a) Competition quality 400 meter all-surface running track including facilities and equipment to accommodate standard running and field events
(b) Multi-use field platform that includes football and field events among others
(c) 12 pickleball courts  
(d) 40,000 square foot street course skate park

Infrastructure and supporting amenities such as additional parking, restrooms, stormwater management, announcer's booth with storage, bleachers, timing system and scoreboard, landscaping, shade and gathering areas would be common where feasible, increasing the efficiency of the project and long-term benefits to the citizens.
