(FORSYTH COUNTY, GA) One of Forsyth County’s popular parks is getting a kid-friendly update. Midway Park, located at 5100 Post Road adjacent to the Midway Family Festival shopping center, will soon debut a new playground and picnic pavilion next to the community building.

“The park renovation project at Midway Park is coming together beautifully, including the new playground and pavilion located next to the community building,” said Lacy Richards, Administration and Marketing Manager for the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department. “We will be resurfacing the entrance of the park as part of the final phase of the project, and then looking to open the facility to the public in August,” she added.

The old playground by the baseball fields was removed earlier in the project. There are no plans to replace it. Forsyth County families may remember that it was somewhat hidden and difficult to access from all parts of the park. The updates and other improvements to the park created the opportunity to relocate the playground near the community building, which has its own parking area, to give more visibility to users.

Midway Park is a busy spot during baseball season with seven youth baseball and softball fields. There are also batting cages, two tennis courts with pickleball lines, and two turf fields for football, lacrosse, and soccer. Forsyth County residents also enjoy a peaceful, tree-lined nature trail with a stream and a 1.3-mile paved walking trail. Residents may rent the community building by the day or the pavilion for 4-hour intervals. The park is open daily from 7 am to 11 pm.
