The project is referred to as the Intergenerational Center, and it will be located on a 21-acre site on Flint River Road. This is a collaborative effort between the Senior Services Department and Parks and Recreation. This facility will provide recreation and activities areas for multiple generations of families to share. It will feature for the first time in Clayton County, a "Black Box Theater" designed especially for live performances with flexible stage and sitting arrangements. The facility will also feature areas for all ages such game rooms, exercise rooms, a multipurpose gym area and outdoor splash pod.
Update: Flint River Community Center is 97% complete. The work on sidewalks and hardscapes is still in progress and is anticipated to be completed by early December. Landscaping, irrigation, parking striping and signage are in progress. Roofing coping is complete. Georgia Power has completed site lighting with the exception of lighting along walking trails. The contractor is working on Building Maintenance Department’s punch list. The exterior playground is complete with the exception of fence installation and the addition of rubber mulch. Adjustment of the splash pad tank is on hold due to a delay in the delivery of materials. All security poles for camera monitors, including two additional security camera poles, have been installed. A perimeter fence may be installed around the property after the construction of Flint River Community Center is complete.
