Officials held a grand reopening ceremony at the center last weekend.
“We took over the parks a couple of months ago and this was one of the centers that needed the most attention,” Stonecrest Mayor Jason Lary said in a statement. “I have coached here and brought my son’s up playing at Browns Mill. I am really moved today just watching the progress that we are making in the city. This is the reason we created the city, to make things better.”

Stonecrest also applied for a license for Browns Mill through the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.
“We are going overboard to make sure this center is clean and safe,” Sean DePalma, Stonecrest’s parks and recreation director, said in a statement.
Stonecrest previously said it planned to make repairs at other parks around the city. Salem and Gregory Mosley parks, officials said, had “unsafe playground equipment.”
