Updates includereconstruction of the aquatics area, including replacement of the pool and ancillary structures, new splash pad, and pool house with restrooms, new playground with an adjacent pavilion and restrooms. To the extent available, remaining funds may be used to target the pedestrian improvement and fence project along Hawthorne Avenue.

October 13 - October 27, 2021 - Public Input for Project Priority List Open via Online Survey
A user group of three Leisure Staff members and three Athens-Clarke County residents, has been tasked with developing a project concept for the Bishop Park Improvements Project. The group develops the project concept based on a priority list of items that are broken into three categories: must have, highly wanted, and nice to have.
The public is invited to review each of the categories and the rankings within each. The user group will take public input into consideration prior to finalizing the project concept and forwarding to Mayor and Commission for approval.
