Our beloved Bradwell Park is undergoing a transformation, further enhancing its status as both a landmark and destination in Hinesville.
The City of Hinesville and the Hinesville Downtown Development Authority (HDDA) outlined the renovation of Bradwell Park as a top priority in the 2019 Renaissance Strategic Vision and Plan. The purpose being to create a vibrant downtown area with a diverse array of dining, family-friendly activities and entertainment options. Through enhanced planning efforts involving the community and many of you, our local downtown business owners, a final design for the park was approved by the Hinesville City Council and HDDA Board in spring 2020.
The renovation project will include a performance stage, outdoor seating, public parking, 17-foot sidewalk area and more. It will also include public restroom facilities and an interactive splash pad. The park’s new design will also feature rain gardens, helping aid stormwater runoff. All of these features will enhance the natural beauty of the park. Once complete, the newly renovated Bradwell Park will offer opportunities for community events, such as block parties, farmers markets, community festivals and the like. It will also help attract residents and visitors to the downtown area to enjoy dining, shopping and leisure activities.
The Bradwell Park Renovation Project represents a $1.3 million investment into Downtown Hinesville. It is funded through a variety of sources including grants and the special local option sales tax (SPLOST). Weather permitting, the newly renovated park is set to open at the beginning of 2022.
While we are very excited about the prospect of renovating one of our community’s most treasured spaces, our main goal is to limit disruptions to our downtown business neighbors. We are business-friendly community and we’ve made it a priority to communicate and work with our downtown business neighbors.
