Visitors to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers parks on Lake Lanier this season may notice some subtle, but nice improvements. Crews worked over the winter to get parks ready for the millions of visitors expected this spring and summer.
Operations Manager Tim Rainey listed numerous maintenance projects completed, including stone veneer installations at on gatehouses at Lanier and Van Pugh North; painting of restrooms at West Bank, Van Pugh North, Bolding Mill, Old Federal, Vanns Tavern, Lanier, Sardis Creek, Thompson Creek and Lower Pool West; plus metal roofing at the Old Federal gatehouse, Thomson Creek shelter, and Van Pugh South shower house.
Additionally, crews converted lighting in all recreational areas to LED and strung new buoy lines at swimming beaches. Rainey added that renovation at Two Mile Creek Park is proceeding on schedule and will soon be complete. Lakeside news http://www.lakesidenews.com/new-activities-at-lake-parks
