Brookhaven, GA, January 9, 2017 – by Trey Benton – The City of Brookhaven’s Parks and Recreation Department will begin another phase of lake bank restoration around Murphey Candler Park lake this week, weather permitting.
The work, expected to begin Monday, January 9th, will involve much the same process that took place earlier this year where tiers were constructed with granite erosion control added. Native plantings will be installed at some point as well.
While the work is being performed, the City says the parking lot adjacent to the lake will be closed to public access. The area where the work will be performed stretches along an 80-foot length of eroded lake bank that lies between the outlook pier and the newly restored area.
Parks and Recreation Director Brian Borden says this project should take two to three weeks to complete.
