During the November 2021 General Election residents of Alpharetta voted to approve a Parks Bond Referendum that will allow the city to carry out several park enhancement projects. There are nine projects that were included in the referendum and the city will be begin their community engagement phase for Union Hill Park and Waters Road Park in March.


Residents are invited to attend a community input session to review the proposed design concepts for Waters Road Park and Union Hill Park. Recreation, Parks & Cultural Services representatives and city officials will be available for discussion and feedback at the event options listed above. These input sessions will provide a chance for residents to help prioritize potential park amenities, take a virtual/digital tour of future park space and offer input on potential park features throughout. All sessions are open to the public but interested attendees only need to attend one to submit their feedback. Draft park design plans will be available for attendees to review.

“These community input opportunities are essential to the park planning process and we are excited to get started on the Parks Bond projects. Each park is unique and has its own potential and we invite the community to help us determine what that looks like,” said John Hipes, City of Alpharetta Council Member and liaison to the Recreation, Parks & Cultural Services Department.


All participants are encouraged to bring a smartphone with them to the Union Hill sessions to participate in an interactive tour. An online survey will also be made available for both parks from the city’s website for those that would like to provide feedback from home.
