The city park in Flowery Branch will last for another 25 years after the city reached an agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the lakeside facility.

On Thursday, members of the Flowery Branch City Council unanimously approved 25-year lease extension for the park south of downtown on the lake.

The park was created in 1998 and continued on three five-year leases between the city and the Army Corps. In 2008, the lease term was extended to 10 years.

With the 25-year lease, the city and corps won’t revisit the lease until 2042.

It costs Flowery Branch $15,000 each year to maintain the area, according to agenda materials prepared for the Thursday meeting.
