Haw Creek Park is located at 2205 Echols Road and spans approximately 85 acres. The park features an approximately 3.3-mile multi-use trail for both foot travel and mountain bikes. Pavilions and a multi-pod playground with a woodlands theme are also included among the park’s features.
Chattahoochee Pointe, an approximately 100-acre park located at 5790 Chattahoochee Pointe Drive off of Old Atlanta Road, borders the Chattahoochee River and features a canoe launch. Two pavilions, more than 2 miles of walking trails and a river-themed nature-inspired playground are also included at Chattahoochee Pointe.
Haw Creek Park and Chattahoochee Pointe are two of the four new green space passive use parks opening in Forsyth County this month. Caney Creek Preserve opened on June 21 and Old Atlanta Park is scheduled to open on Friday, June 29.
Acquisition of the land for these four new parks was funded by the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond approved by Forsyth County voters in February 2008. Construction of the parks was funded by a combination of the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond, Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) and Impact Fees.
