Cherokee park meeting draws dozens

A possible first-ever skate park in Cherokee County and multipurpose athletic fields ranked high on the suggestion list as Cherokee park and recreation officials met with residents last week to talk about general concepts for the planned East Park.

Agency head Bryan Reynolds says the 149-acre facility along Ga. 20 east of Canton is expected to include multi-purpose fields, a playground, softball and baseball fields and tennis courts. He says about 75 people listened and offered input.

Another meeting is 6:30 pm. Dec. 9 at Macedonia Elementary School, 10370 E. Cherokee Drive.

Following that second session, county staffers and architects Lose and Associates will work up a detailed master plan for presentation to the Board of Commissioners in early 2015.
