The 11 year old park named after the 40th president has gotten a new facelift. Just in time to celebrate Parks and Recreation Month in July, the $1,116,000 renovation was completed at Ronald Reagan Park through a grant from the Land and Water Conservation Fund and funding from the 2014 SPLOST. Renovations included removal and reconstruction of the skate park, reconstruction of footbridges and railings, construction of a gabion wall at stream, dog park reconfiguration with storm drainage improvements, sidewalk connections, erosion control, landscaping and reforestation.
Ronald Reagan Park’s colorful playground area is the perfect way for kids to enjoy the outdoors. Other amenities in this 25 acre park include dog park area, horseshoe pits, shuffleboard courts, bocce ball courts, two half-basketball courts, pavilions and multi-purpose trail. This park is open from sunrise until sunset. Ronald Reagan Park is located at 2777 Five Forks Trickum Road in Lawrenceville.
