New Towne Green to open with Beach Blast, concert on May 21st

Snellville – A Saturday ceremony will officially open the new Towne Green, followed by the annual Beach Blast and the first concert of the season. 

City officials will gather for a ribbon-cutting and a city sign reveal at 2 p.m. on the new Towne Green in front of City Hall. 

The Towne Green underwent a makeover in recent months. Improvements include a protective, knee-high wall that doubles as seating around the Green. In the center is a sundial that tells those who stand on it the time. There is also new foliage, signage, electrical outlets and a dog-friendly three-tiered water fountain.

“The Towne Green provides Snellville with a safe community gathering space that further promotes a walkable, engaging Towne Center,” said Eric Van Otteren, city Economic Development director. 

Say “Hi” to STAT the CAT and celebrate his second birthday. Chopper of the Gwinnett Braves and some other mascot friends will also be there to celebrate.

There is a threat of inclement weather. Should it rain, check the city's Facebook page for updates.
