Watkinsville Mayor Request Clean-Up of Harris Shoals Park
Various groups answered the call of Mayor Joe Walter and appeared at the park on Saturday.
Members of the Keep Oconee Beautiful Commission, members of the Watkinsville Council, city residents and a few students met at the park at 9 am with gear in hand for picking up even the smallest bit of trash. Then they scattered out over the park, including around the small lake, the creek, the creek banks, the playground and the parking area.
They collected several bags of litter and the park is sparkling clean for future events. The immediate event will be parking for visitors to the Fall Festival on October 15.
The renovation of the park finished several months ago includes, a new cook-out shelter with a fireplace, upgrade of the bathrooms, another bridge across the stream and paving of the road leading into the park and leading out of the park by the lake onto VFW Drive.
Future improvement will be an upgrade of the playground equipment all paid for with a generous grant from the Georgia Community Affairs Department.
