Brooke Street Park Exists in Name
Alpharetta residents have a new park, but until the City Center is built, they probably won't be able to use it, as it will continue to be a construction site.
Brooke Street Park was intended to be a passive park from the start, but today it isn't much more than a couple of signs, some trees, squirrels and erosion control fences.
The park is intended to be larger than just the section bounded by the existing Haynes Bridge Road and Brooke Street. But it got smaller before it will get bigger – the new route for Haynes Bridge Road uses property to the west of Brooke Street's "top half" rather than displacing more homes.
