Installation of LED Lighting on Soccer Fields Completed

Dawson County Parks and Recreation is proud to announce the installation of new LED lighting on the soccer fields at Rock Creek Park. DCPR Director Lisa Henson said, “We flipped the switch at 10am on February 2nd, a lighting test was performed by Musco Sports Lighting on Thursday night, and we are ready for play.”

The project began 16 years ago as a vision for the future. Thanks to SPLOST VI funding, dedicated to park improvements, the vision became a reality. Dawson County is the first Parks and Recreation Department in the state of Georgia to have LED sports lighting on their playing fields.  “The new sports lighting for the soccer fields will serve Dawson County for 25 years,” Henson said.
