East Roswell Park Entrance Renovations
The City of Roswell has announced plans to update the East Roswell Park Entrance off Fouts Road in order to provide a better experience for visitors, neighbors, and volunteers. All Roswell residents are invited to attend a public walk-thru of the area where these renovations will be taking place on Saturday, January 26 at 10 a.m.
These renovations will include:
• Replacing the landmark sign and landscaping the front entrance, making it clearly visible and easily recognizable from the road.
• Increasing trail connectivity and minimizing vehicle and pedestrian crossings by completing the loop trail around the perimeter of the park.
• Creating an outdoor gathering area in front of the Art Center for classes, events, and activities.
• Creating ADA parking for The Art Center at East Roswell Park.
In order to complete these renovations, the city will be removing a number of trees to allow for an easily accessible, ADA-compliant parking lot at The Art Center at East Roswell Park. The majority of the trees will be replaced with a variety of hard wood, flowering, and evergreen species.
Phase one of this project, which includes tree removal and parking lot construction, will take place February through May 2019.
