If all goes as planned, Lilburn will have a new 69-acre park as of Memorial Day weekend.
That's the date Gwinnett County is aiming to open Bryson Park on Lawrenceville Highway, according to Dan Hafner, development manager at the county's Parks and Recreation Department.
Originally, Bryson Park was to open next month, but the rainy weather has meant delays.
"It's been warm, but it's been wet," Hafner said. "That's caused us some problems."
Work on the park started a year ago and is paid for by SPLOST funds. Bryson will have will a track-encircled artificial turf field for football, soccer and lacrosse. It will have two fenced and lighted soccer fields, one full and two half basketball courts, 7,300- and 2,600-square-foot playgrounds, a half-mile walking trail and 500-plus parking spaces.
