Newtown Park Pavilion In The Works

City council hears presentation on Newtown Park project.

Johns Creek residents may soon have the option of holding events such as wedding receptions and family reunions in .

The on July 9 listened to a presentation by the Public Works Department on a proposed location for a pavilion at the park that could accommodate some 150 to 200 people.

Citing requests from numerous local businesses and residents for a gathering space in the park, Public Works Director Tom Black presented a concept plan for the pavilion, approved in the fiscal year 2012 budget for $160,000.

The proposed location near the dog park and lacrosse field was chosen due to a limited amount of environmental disturbance and a close proximity to the new parking expansion and existing restrooms.

"No additional funds" beyond the money already budgeted will be required, said Black.

The pavilion area will include a location for grilling as well as running water and power.
