Tucker, GA — The city of Tucker is planning to hold two public meetings this month about the future of Lord Park and Fitzgerald Field.
The Lord Park meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on June 9. An update and presentation of plans for Fitzgerald Field is being held at 7 p.m. on June 16. Both meetings will take place at Tucker Recreation Center, 4898 Lavista Road.
Tucker’s Parks Master Plan was adopted in 2019. The plan states that between three and eight neighborhood parks should be added to the city.
Lord Park is an undeveloped, 27-acre park with walking trails located in Smoke Rise. The Parks Master Plan calls for Lord Park to be developed with a parking lot, restrooms, a playground, woodland trails, a picnic shelter and a dog park.
Fitzgerald Field was acquired by the city in 2019 from Tucker Football League. The Tucker City Council approved $1 million in spending at Fitzgerald Field to repair infrastructure and improve lighting.
City council member Alexis Weaver has been pushing for Tucker Parks and Recreation to gain community feedback from surrounding residents.
A public meeting will be held for Johns Homestead, but has not been scheduled, said Tucker spokesperson Sonja Szubski.
