Clayton County to finalize International Park plans

The Clayton County Board of Commissioners is finalizing the master plan for the renovation of a large portion of the Clayton County International Park. According to a press release, the plan is under development and is anticipated to be completed this month. The master plan will identify renovations that will be funded through the Special Purpose Local Option Tax.

The master plan will also lay out the total cost and construction schedule. International Park improvements will include: walking and bike trails, Nassau building renovation, new entrance, new water park with pools, splash pad, lazy river, wave runner, kiddie pool, etc., pavilions and cabanas overlooking the water park and new water feature with fountains, food truck area, boardwalk, party deck, new dog park, playground with new equipment, a skywalk with adventure climbing.

Throughout construction, the 180-acre park will continue to have areas that will remain open to the public for summer enjoyment, according to county officials. These areas include green space for picknicking or casual sports and paths for walking or bicycling. Pavilions available for rent include the Aruba, St. Thomas and St. Vincent. For safety purposes, the St. Kitts, St. Martin and St. John pavilions will be closed to the public during construction.
