Braselton planning 71-acre park near Mulberry River

Braselton has begun a search for a design and development firm to develop a community park master plan for a 71-acre tract of land owned by the town. The proposed park would sit on the south side of State Route 124 and the west side of the Mulberry River, within the town limits of Braselton and in Barrow County. Most of the land lies within the flood plain of the Mulberry River. The site has never been developed and is currently in a natural state.

Depending on how plans progress, the park will likely contain paved walking/running trails, natural foot paths along Mulberry River to the State Route 124 bridge, a bike trail, children’s outdoor play equipment, a dog park, picnic pavilion, restroom facilities, and pedestrian bridges. The tentative plan also calls for an interactive water feature, and a continuous water course in the shape of the Braselton “B” logo.
