School officials debut Lakewood Stadium makeover

Atlanta school officials Friday will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. to mark the completion of a $17 million renovation of Lakewood Stadium. Lakewood, located at 70 Claire Drive, SW, received new lights and sound systems, new stands and playing surfaces and other upgrades. It is the second of the district’s two athletic stadiums to receive extensive renovations in the last few years. Grady Stadium was renovated in 2010. Georgia State University will also use the stadium for track and field practice. Information:
