The latest green space park opens in Forsyth County
CUMMING- The new Old Atlanta Park located on Nichols Road in Forsyth County officially opened Friday becoming the latest featuring a green space style passive use park.
The approximately 39-acre park is one of four that was funded by a combination of the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond, Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) and Impact Fees.
The park has two pavilions, a natural playground, a 1 mile walking trial and a special area for children six years old and younger called a "tot lot".
Old Atlanta Park is the final of four new green space passive use parks recently opened by Forsyth County. The other three parks – Haw Creek Park, Chattahoochee Pointe and Caney Creek Preserve were also recently opened.
For information on these new green space passive use parks or the many programs and activities offered by the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department, call 770.781.2215 or visit www.forsythco.com.
