Cherokee County offers a wide array of outdoor activities. Some of the park facilities are widely known, and others are hidden gems. With July being National Park and Recreation Month, we wanted to share a few of our favorite resources to help encourage TowneLakers to get out and enjoy the great outdoors in North Georgia!
Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency
At the county level, there are several parks and facilities available for residents and visitors to enjoy. The county website lists 25 parks and facilities including the Cherokee County Aquatic Center and the Splash Pad at Cline Park, both popular summer locations.
City of Canton
The county seat of Cherokee County offers seven parks. A variety of attractions such as play structures, walking tracks, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a gazebo can be found among the City of Canton parks.
Holly Springs encompasses a variety of communities in North Georgia and boasts three parks. J.B. Owens Park is the newest addition. This 33-acre park is located on Hickory Road just outside the entrance to the Harmony on the Lakes subdivision. It is scheduled to open sometime this summer.
Woodstock is made up of a thriving downtown, business parks, residential neighborhoods, and is criss crossed by Interstate 575 and State Highway 92. All of these elements make it the perfect place for six parks including a park just for those furry friends at Woofstock Park.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
With an abundance of campgrounds and day use facilities, the recreation.gov website proves to be an invaluable resource. This site provides location and amenity information for each Army Corps of Engineer access site located around Allatoona Lake.
Greenprints Alliance and SORBA
With an ever expanding trail system throughout Woodstock and beyond, the Greenprints Alliance in cooperation with the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) has plans to make over 60 miles of trails accessible. These trails are perfect for biking, walking, running, and hiking in North Georgia.
This list of resources does not cover all of the facilities and parks throughout Cherokee County. We want to hear from you! What are your favorite spots?
