LAKE LANIER, Ga. — The state Department of Natural Resources is preparing to build its first park at Lake Lanier despite recent budget cuts that have curtailed services at other parks, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The 1,040-acre Don Carter State Park is one of two facilities that soon will be added to the roster of 63 Georgia state parks and historic sites. DNR officials told the newspaper that the park will serve the less-developed northeastern part of Lake Lanier, offering camping, swimming and other outdoor activities.
Some wonder why the state is building more parks as it cuts operating expenses at existing facilities.
