Know Before You Go

ParkAthens Square

Athens Square is currently closed to reconstruct the plaza and adjacent seating area. Pavement that has settled over the years creating low points where water pools will be replaced. The Sun of Vergina, an ancient Greek symbol, will be placed in the circle that is used for a stage at concerts in the summer. The cheek walls on either side of the two ramps will be reconstructed and a new ramp will be constructed between the seating area and the plaza. New handrails will be installed, two and one-half foot fencing will be placed around plant beds, plant material will be replaced as needed, and a trench drain will be installed near the spray shower to keep water from flowing onto the safety surface.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2014
