First Posted: 6:30 am - December 24th, 2015

Larry Stanford|The Thomaston Times Thomaston Mayor Hays Arnold (far right in white hard hat and shovel), members of the City Council, city staff members, and well wishers gathered Friday afternoon to officially break ground on the Lake Thomaston Park project. State Representative Johnnie Caldwell and a representative from Congressman Lynn Westmoreland’s office attended, along with representatives of Carter & Sloop Consulting Engineers and Tommy Gibson Builders. The ground breaking was held for the new boathouse/amphitheater to be built on the site. Mayor Arnold briefly recalled the history of the lake, built in the late 1950’s by Thomaston Mills, then purchased and enlarged by the city as a reservoir when the mills closed. He thanked the city council for having the greater vision of not just having a water reservoir, but a place for citizens to enjoy, with a maintenance road around the reservoir perfect for walking, running, skating and/or bikng, a new floating dock and boats to rent, and the construction of the combination boathouse with restrooms and amphitheater. The building is expected to be completed by late summer 2016.
