Hawthorne Center Bathroom Renovation Is Complete

Post Date:04/02/2019

Why pay $188,796 for a bathroom renovation when you can do it yourself for $64,000?

Next time you're at the Alice J. Hawthorne Center at Jessie Davis Park, take a look at the beautiful new bathrooms that have been completely renovated with funds from the 2016 SPLOST. Parks & Recreation Director Travis Landrum received a bid of $188,796.00 for the renovation. Landrum talked with Director of Public Services Greg Roberts who knew his group could do better. Facilities and Maintenance Supervisor Happy Howard and his team set out to do a quality renovation for Parks & Rec for considerably less than the bid price.

Take a look at the results!

Congratulations to Douglasville's Parks & Recreation and Public Services departments who know good things happen when you work together as a team!
