The Friends of Briarwood Park is holding its monthly meeting Tuesday night, April 2nd at the Rec Center from 6:30-7:30. We meet the first Tuesday of every month.
Saturday we are holding our biggest work day ever. Flyers are posted all over Brookhaven. Please bring loppers, leaf bags, blowers, snippers, wheel barrows, weed eaters, rakes, etc. Dress comfortably to battle ivy, privet and vines. Gloves and long pants a must. We’ll meet at the Rec Center at 9 am to sign release waivers and review work opportunities. Dekalb County has mentioned a Bobcat and personnel for the day.
The focus of Saturday is creating a walking trail along Briarwood Way up to the new playground and revitalizing the old growth forest. Thanks to all involved to date. Briarwood Park looks better and better every time we work. There should be some city as well as county representatives available if you have questions about Briarwood Park going forward, Summer pool opening and Rec Center hours. Some maintenance work has begun on the Pool area. The chairs and tables with umbrellas have returned and some pressure washing of the deck surrounding the pool has taken place.
Come to work, say hello or just hang out and enjoy Briarwood Park and Rec Center. Please forward this to your neighborhood groups for their involvement. (click the photos to view full size)
