The renovated park opened in the fall of 2018 with a variety of new features, including an entrance plaza that welcomes visitors into the multi-use open space field and stadium-style stone seating positioned for great views of park activities. Additionally, it hosts a multi-use trail for bikers and walkers alike.
“The carefully considered amenities that are a part of this project allow families and friends to gather and appreciate the beauty of the park. Murphey Candler Park is a jewel in the Brookhaven park system that’s practically hidden in plain sight. It offers so many opportunities for residents to gather to socialize, pursue athletic activities or simply enjoy nature at its best. It is such a shining example of why we devote so much time and attention to our park system.” Linley Jones, District 1 Councilwoman.
