Lilburn approves playground equipment bid for City Park


The Lilburn City Council voted recently to award the bid for the replacement and installation of playground equipment at Lilburn City Park to Architectural Design Specialties/Playground Creations of Atlanta in an amount not to exceed $162,600.

In a 2015 citizen survey conducted by Lilburn, more than half of park users expressed a desire for new playground equipment including a toddler area. The renovated playground will include separate areas for younger and older children, brand new equipment, a softer playing surface, and better wheelchair accessibility. The city will build a new parking lot in Lilburn City Park near the playground, at the site of the existing tennis courts.

Playground closure will be announced when a construction schedule is finalized. This project is being funded by the 2017 SPLOST/Recreation fund.
