Parks in Cobb County include walking trails like these

A Friendly Local Favorite: Swift-Cantrell Park

Swift-Cantrell Park is a local favorite for so many reasons. It’s big, with more than a mile of walking trail and plenty of open turf for activities – but it includes so much more. This park features two playgrounds with lots of options for play, a big and small dog park for the pooches, a wifi hotspot, fitness station, lighted skatepark and even a splash pad. With all of those amenities, it’s no question – this is Kennesaw’s favorite public park.

A Fantastic Hike and History Lesson: Kennesaw Mountain

Possibly the biggest park around, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is part of the National Parks system. It provides a wealth of activities for all kinds of outings, with picnic facilities, hiking trails for all skill levels, and a museum. The rangers here are the real treasure, being incredibly knowledgeable about history and the natural surroundings. Scheduling a talk with them for a class or small group, or stopping by on the weekends at about 10:30 for a Ranger Talk is always enlightening. As the seasons change, so do the animal residents of the mountain – and birdwatching here is a year-round treat. Gunnerson Pointe is so close by that you can be in the park in minutes – it’s the perfect neighborhood for anyone who loves nature and a good hike.
