 The City of Gainesville’s contractors have finished replacing the decking on the bridge between wetland cells 1 and 2 at Sweetwater Wetlands Park. The original pine decking has been replaced by naturally rot-resistant hardwood. Once the protective oil that has been applied to the wood has been allowed to dry completely, the bridge will be reopened. All of the park’s trails will be open to visitors on Thursday, January 17.

We appreciate everyone’s patience during this process, and are excited to welcome visitors to once again enjoy all that the park has to offer. 
 
For technical questions about the redecking project, please call (352) 318-8202. For questions about the park and facility access, call (352) 334-5067.
