Through dedicated efforts by University of Georgia students, faculty and staff, Lake Herrick will be officially reopened on Wednesday, October 17, after being closed to swimmers and boaters for more than 16 years. Renovations to the lake include an updated pavilion, new ADA accessible overlook dock, a terraced lawn for events and recreational uses, an expansion of the lakeside trail system and pond renovations.
