Shamrock Park Playground Angle 1
New Playground Equipment Coming to Shamrock Park

The Town released a Request For Proposals (RFP) in September 2021 for the purpose of finding a vendor to renovate the playground at Shamrock Park. We received excellent design proposals from nine reputable vendors and ultimately contracted with Playworx to install a multi-activity, ADA compliant playground structure for children aged 5 to 12. The current equipment will be removed this Spring to make way for the new and (much) improved structure. 

The Town had hoped to see this project completed before Spring, but the current supply chain issues have us waiting until late Spring/early Summer. 

The total cost for this project is $147,695.74 and is funded by monies received via the CARES Act. 

Concept Images are provided below.

St. Paddys Event Cancellation Notice
St. Paddy's Event CANCELLED

The Town's St. Patrick's event scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday, March 12, 2022) is being cancelled due to the pending weather. Given the forecast and the fact that several vendors have already made their own decision to cancel, we do not believe it would be prudent to press forward.

It is a policy guide for making land use and capital investment decisions, and it sets policies for Town officials and staff concerning future development.

Envision Tyrone! - A Town Center Plan 


In 2020, the Town of Tyrone was presented with a $200,000 grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission to perform a Master Plan for the Town Center (Downtown) district of Tyrone. Later that year, the Town contracted with POND Co. who provided urban design, economic market analysis, landscape architecture, and transportation engineering consultation services in order to develop the plan. The plan was completed in 2021 and serves as the guiding document for development and Town investment in the Town Center District.
