The Lake Athens Marina RV Park opens Friday (April 1) in Athens, Texas, with a whole new look to the offices that have been closed since late 2014, the Athens Review reported.

George Bayoud of Athens LLC said there’ve been major changes to the look of the facility in preparation for the opening.

“We’ve pretty well redone the whole park, new roads and pad sites,” Bayoud said. “We’ve redone what we call the events center.”

Another change that is sure to catch the eye is a 40-foot flagpole where the American and Texas flags fly. That was erected on Tuesday.

“There’s obviously some work to be done, but we’re excited about it,” Bayoud said. “It’s sort of a soft opening right now, but we’re going to have a grand opening in a week or so.”
