Braselton Mulberry RiverWalk Closing for Construction 

The Mulberry Riverwalk will be closing on March 21, 2022 in order to accommodate the construction for a long-awaited Mulberry River streambank restoration program.

 The proposed project will restore and stabilize portions of the west bank of the Mulberry River and will protect the Town’s important water and wastewater infrastructure, as well as the RiverWalk.

Following completion of the Project in 12-18 months, the Town will begin to restore and rebuild the trail in this area better than ever.

During this important restoration process, there will be numerous trucks hauling surplus earth from the riverbank to an offsite location as well as equipment and material being delivered for the restoration process. The process will require truck traffic in and around Fisk Falls Drive, Madrid Falls Drive and Liberty Church Road. Please bear with us during these inconveniences.

Want to know more about how we are restoring the riverbank and why it is necessary?

Protection of the Mulberry River, a drinking supply source for the community, is paramount but the fringe benefit provides a unique place to connect with the beauty of the natural setting - just steps away from a busy commercial and residential area. A 2.5 multiuse trail along the banks of the scenic Mulberry River can be accessed by a gravel parking lot on Thompson Mill Rd near Hwy 211. A 5 minute bike ride brings you to a beautiful spot to pause and enjoy the falls. A short walk from the falls brings you to Braselton's historically reminiscent bridge connecting the park with the township neighborhoods. One hundred yards away you'll arrive at the 4 counties marker, a granite monument denoting the intersection of Barrow, Gwinnett, Hall & Jackson counties all within the town limits. Sidewalk access to the trail continues along to a quiet picnic area. The trail continues along the steepening banks to climb to its terminus. Rivers Alive Cleanup & Flood Run are held here.
