Cobb Parks (and Beyond)
Have I mentioned how much we love parks?! Here are a few of our favorites:
Oakdale Park - 4126 Atlanta Rd SE, Smyrna, GA 30080 This is for the climber in your group. Seriously one of the tallest slides I've ever seen at a park. There is also a small area for smaller children.
Taylor- Brawner Park - 3180 Atlanta Rd, Smyrna, GA 30080 This is one of our favorite parks because it's so close to the house. It also has a ton of green space (which I miss about Central Park in NYC), which is nice for picnics and just to run around in. But the park can fill up quickly.
Cobb Park and Kidscape Village I & II - 2776 Sanford Rd SE, Smyrna, GA 30080 This park is nice for children of all ages. The park is divided into an area for smaller children, and bigger kids. The area for smaller children is also great for children with special needs and/or disabilities. It seems to be created with almost everyone in mind.
Tramore Park - 2150 East-West Connector, Austell, GA 30106 This park is smaller in comparison to some of the others on the list. But it still has a lot of potential. The slides are kind of funky. Not good for small children. It's conveniently located to some nice green space for soccer or baseball.
Silver Comet Linear Park - 1301 Richard D Sailors Pkwy, Powder Springs, GA 30127 This park is located right on the silver comet trail. It is a whimsical park with a tree of life theme. There is also an outdoor gym that adults can use further along the trail if you don't want the kids to have all the fun. They are also building an addition on to the park, excited about that!
Swift Cantrell Park - 3140 Old 41 Hwy NW, Kennesaw, GA 30144 Gated area for smaller kids, plus a separate area for bigger kids. There are also building a splash pad to be complete this summer (June 2017). That will be a real treat during this HOT Georgia summer.
Mudd Creek Soccer Complex - This covered playground might be our new go-to because of the shade which will come in handy during the summer. There are 2 separate parks, good for even the smallest park goer. There is also a trail if you feeling up to it to walk around.
