Jamestown Community Park
The Recreation and Parks Department has been working closely with the Sandridge Community Association and project consultants WK Dickson & Co., Inc. to draft a plan for improvements for Jamestown Park. Proposed updates include the conversion of the existing baseball field to a regulation-length football field, the addition of a walking track around the field, relocation of the current basketball courts from the parking lot to the park interior, as well as some improvements to enable better ADA access. Additional proposals include the construction of a new comfort station and the designation of overflow parking. A public meeting on July 12 starting at 7 p.m. at the Jamestown Community Center provided an opportunity for the public to view and comment on the draft design, as well as hear updates and share comments about upcoming improvements to other parks within the Augusta Recreation and Parks network. The Jamestown Community Center is located at 3647 Karleen Road, Augusta, GA 30906.
The updates will be funded by SPLOST 7 dollars, which were approved in 2015 in specific categories such as Sports Facility Field and Court Improvements, Neighborhood Parks, and Hiking Trails. Jamestown will be the focus for the first of a series of these SPLOST 7 Park Improvement Meetings. Other facilities to be addressed in this public meeting series include Fleming Park, Dyess Park, the Julian Smith Casino and BBQ Pit in Lake Olmstead Park, and the Lombard Mill Pond Trail.
This project was opened for public comments for two weeks during July 2018, and no comments were received during that time
