The Smyrna City Council voted 7-0 recently to accept about 5.5 acres as its first park along the Chattahoochee River to be known as Riverview Park.
A part of the Riverview Landing mixed-use development, the 5.5 acres has been transferred to Smyrna for the park, according to a city statement.
Already added by the developer, Riverview Park has a public parking area, public bathrooms, a small stage, a sitting area and a boat launch, the statement added.
Maintenance of the detention pond within the park will remain the responsibility of the Riverview Landing Owners Association.
