Released June 03, 2016 02:03 PM

Rock Mill Park was presented “the region’s Watershed/Stormwater Project of Excellence” STREAM Award at the 2016 Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District’s 15th Anniversary Celebration.

The Metro Water District’s STREAM award program honors projects that are environmentally friendly, thoughtful and creative, include the community, have a positive impact on the region and serve as a model for other communities.

"The hard work of the city's Recreation and Parks Department shows in every feature of the park. With walk, run and bike access points to the greenway trail and the park's ability to be used for all types of events such as field trips, press conferences and water festivals, I am not surprised the park was recognized.” stated Councilman Jason Binder.  

This is not the first award Rock Mill Park has received. The park’s beauty and functionality has led to recognition by the Georgia Association of Water Professionals, American Society of Civil Engineers Georgia Section and the American Society of Landscape Architects.
