Stream Restoration Project to Impact Webb Bridge Park Trail Access A small portion of the trail system at Webb Bridge Park will be closed to public access when the stream restoration project begins. The section of trail that will be closed is approximately .2 miles and is in the wooded area near the stream. The purpose of the closure is to perform stream restoration work. Officials with the City of Alpharetta Department of Engineering and Public Works estimate closure of this portion of the trail through February 21, 2014. The main trail system will be accessible during this time.
Residents of neighborhoods adjacent to the park will continue to use their regular access points to the trail. Once the project begins, construction crews will work dawn to dusk on weekdays and Saturdays to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible to minimize the impact on neighbors and park patrons.
For additional information, contact Jill Bazinet or Scott Campbell with the Department of Engineering and Public Works at (678) 297-6200.
PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN ALPHARETTA AND MILTON: On November 5, 2012, the Mayors and City Councils of Alpharetta and Milton entered into a mutually beneficial agreement for the provision of parks and recreation services. The agreement provides a framework for citizens of both cities to register for and participate in either cities' recreation programs before an "open" registration period is offered, and an annual payment tot he City providing the majority of the programming rather than that City's individual residents paying non-resident fees each time they register for a program in the adjoining City. Milton residents pay resident fees for City of Alpharetta Recreation and Parks programs. For more information, email email@example.com.
Heavy rains and local flooding may result in temporary closure of portions of the Greenway. To find out today’s status, please call the Parks Services Division at 678-297-6123. During the winter season, some park restrooms and water fountains may be closed to prevent frozen pipes.
