Woodstock has acquired 21 acres along Ga. 92 for a future trailhead and expansion of the Greenprints trail system.
The City Council approved the land acquisition from Andy Fowler and other family members, using $291,129 of unrestricted general fund reserves (to be reimbursed by future park impact fees) to pay for it. The land is north of Ga. 92 and east of Main Street and the Georgia Northeastern Railroad.
The property is vacant, and the city has no timeline for developing it, according to Michael D. Huffstetler, Woodstock Parks and Recreation director. “There is a small piece of the property above (an) apartment complex that could potentially see some park development, but nothing is planned right now,” he said in an email.
Near the Fowler tract, Greenprints maps show a possible future trailhead in Springfield Park, a proposed southward extension of the Rubes Creek Trail, and a proposed eastward extension of the Serenade Trail. For information about the Greenprints trails: https://greenprintsalliance.org/
