Veterans Memorial Park in Dawsonville is bustling with activity these days as the recreational center undergoes long overdue renovations. So far the most noticeable change is in the pool house, a building that has sat at the front entrance of the park for at least forty years. The building was demolished earlier this year and is undergoing its final weeks of reconstruction. The pool house, which contains concessions, changing rooms and storage, is expected to be completed by May 15, according to Dawson County Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Henson. New fencing will also update the look of the pool area, home to the county’s only public pool. It’s one of many recent and future upgrades the county is performing on the park, which celebrates its 46th birthday this year.
