Woodstock calls public meeting on new park

Woodstock residents are invited to an “input session” in December to give suggestions about a new park to be created on Trickum Road near the Little River on the city’s east side.

The Woodstock Parks and Recreation Department event is to start at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 in the Chambers at City Center, 8534 Main St. Parks Director Preston Pooser will open the meeting with an overview of the project, with public input to follow.

The meeting follows the announcement in October that Woodstock and the Greenprints Alliance, a local trails advocate, would combine their holdings totaling some 100 acres to create the new park.

The intent is to preserve open space, protect the Little River and Etowah River basins, create additional trails and a possible canoe launch site, and provide passive recreational opportunities, parks officials said.
