Equestrian enthusiasts weighed in on plans for a future park earlier this week during a meeting of the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Board.

Jon Hart, with county-hired design firm AMEC, presented a draft map Tuesday of the Lanierland property in North Forsyth, which features an equestrian center.

The plan included a large and small arena, two warmup areas, stables and parking for trailers, cars and RVs.

Hart said the equestrian center has a footprint of about 35 acres within the nearly 110-acre site off Jett and Jot Em Down roads.

Money to develop the park is included in the voter-approved $100 million parks, recreation and green space bond, the same funding used to purchase the property.

Nearly $8 million has been set aside for the Lanierland property and the future Matt community park.

The Lanierland plan also calls for five baseball fields, two rectangle fields and several walking trails.
