Tuesday May 03, 2016 – Butterfly Garden Opens Saturday
Gainesville Hall ’96 is delighted to announce the opening of the Fields Memorial Butterfly Garden at Lake Lanier Olympic Park, presented by Turner, Wood & Smith Insurance.
The garden is part of the renewal of the Olympic spirit at the park and will be dedicated to Bill and Kitty Fields who were instrumental in Gainesville being chosen as an Olympic site.
Bill Fields, an Olympic Gold Medalist in rowing, was part of “The Great Eight” a record breaking USA rowing crew from the 1950s. Following a highly decorated naval career, Fields, a Georgia native, retired to the shores of Lake Lanier in Gainesville. The rest is history.
Please join us this Saturday, May 14th at 12 PM as we honor the Fields Family and open this new phase of our Olympic Park. Preceeding the butterfly dedication, we will also be unveiling five new pieces in the Vision 2030 Public Art Project – part of the Free Range Art program, these pieces will decorate the park all summer during our Olympic anniversary celebration.
