(Lawrenceville, Ga., Sept. 29, 2011) – On Friday, Sept. 30, Mountain View Athletic Association and Dacula Soccer Club will host a groundbreaking for Rabbit Hill Park at 3:30 p.m. and Archer Athletic Association host a groundbreaking for Harbins Park at 4:30 p.m. These ground breakings are part of new park facilities promised in the 2009 SPLOST sales tax program.
Rabbit Hill Park near Dacula will add two soccer fields, a concession/restroom building and a trail extension. In a second area of the park, Astra Group, Inc. will build seven new baseball/softball fields, a multi-purpose field with a walking track, playground and a six-acre lake that will provide irrigation water from an on-site well. The nearly $9.6 million project also includes road improvements with a traffic signal and turn lanes at the intersection of Hurricane Shoals Road and Rabbit Hill Road.
CRS Building Corp. received a $5.9 million contract to build a multi-purpose (football/soccer/lacrosse) field on the Indian Shoals Road side of Harbins Park, a concession/restroom building and a walking track. There will also be a rental pavilion, a playground, a dog park, a three-acre lake and a 1.5-mile paved trail through the lowlands adjacent to Cedar Creek.
Lose & Associates of Lawrenceville designed the new facilities at both parks.
