Wander into any of the 16 city parks in Sandy Springs, and you’ll discover much more than a few swings and a blacktop. Each of our parks has its own unique character and qualities, giving visitors a variety of things to do and see outdoors in Sandy Springs.
Nestled along the banks of the Chattahoochee River, Morgan Falls Overlook Park, is popular with both young families and outdoor enthusiasts. The kid-friendly playground, walking trails and picnic pavilion make it a great spot for a family outing. Looking to get out on the water? High Country Outfitters offers boat storage and rentals at the Paddle Shack they operate on-site, and the public boat dock gives paddlers and fishermen direct access to water. Or, if you’re looking to relax, claim a bench swing and enjoy the view!
If it’s a playground you seek, look no further than our award-winning Abernathy Greenway Playable Art Park. Meant to inspire imagination and creativity, the park features works of art that kids of all ages can climb on, over and through.
Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a peaceful walk in the woods, and the John Ripley Forbes Big Trees Forest Preserve is a natural oasis in the heart of Sandy Springs. As you follow the nature trails further into the 30-acre tree, plant and wildlife sanctuary, the sounds of the city fade away, replaced by the gentle flow of the Powers Branch stream.
