Bryan Park and Griffy Lake Improvements Increase Accessibility

Griffy Lake boathouse closed May 2 for final resurfacing of Headley Road, which already reopened to one-way north flow traffic. The road will reopen to two-way traffic when the new guardrail is installed. The Griffy Lake Loop Trail & Accessible Fishing Pier project will create a quarter-mile multiuse path on the westside of Headley Road to connect the northern and southern trails around Griffy Lake and will create an accessible fishing pier directly west of the existing Griffy Lake Nature Preserve parking lot. This will improve accessibility and pedestrian safety as visitors will be able to access the trails along the western portion of the lake by walking along a separated path, rather than along the road. Work is ongoing and a ribbon cutting to introduce the completed accessible fishing pier and Headley Road path is tentatively planned for July or August. Learn more about the project at
