Briar Patch Park To Be Refurbished

Our district supervisor Koran Saines informs us that the Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park will be closed for up to four months starting on Tuesday October 9. Given the extent of the project, County staff determined it would be better to complete it all at once, necessitating the closure.

The extensive construction project includes milling and resurfacing tennis and basketball courts, trails and the parking lot, replacing a retaining wall and fencing, replacing a playground and surrounding surfaces, repairing drainage areas and enhancing access areas. These changes will complete work that began a couple years ago to update the park. At the end of this project the park will be better and more enjoyable for Sterling children and families.
