The expansion project, designated as Phase 2 in the park’s master plan, includes the following:
- Eight tennis courts

- Four baseball/softball fields
- Miracle League baseball/softball field
- All-inclusive playground
- Hard and soft surface trails

“We are pleased to bring these amenities to Lanierland,” said Jim Pryor, parks and recreation director. “With the new Miracle League Field and supporting facilities to enhance the Miracle League experience, the park will feature several different elements for everyone to enjoy.”
The consultant for the project is Lose Design, and the general contractor is Astra Group Inc. The project budget is $16.5 million and is being funded by SPLOST VIII and impact fees. The project is expected to be completed by fall 2022.
