Rabbit Hill Park Site Improvements Complete

Construction of the improvements to Rabbit Hill Park in Gwinnett County, Georgia was completed last week as the trees were installed. One of the new park elements is this water feature.  Water originates in the upper patio area below the playground in a shallow basin and flows through the stepped concrete paver flume terminating in a lower basin and patio area that overlooks the existing lake.  The lower basin drains into and replenishes the existing lake that is used to irrigate soccer fields and the new dog park.  This water feature is fed by an existing on-site well.
