Great playground for kids incl. swings, slides, climbing wall, spider web rope thing, spider web monkey bar thing and more -- all under a big shaded cover which really made a difference. The golf grass is nice too. We came on a weekday morning and there were many kids of all ages and single parents (or nannies). They've also got... More

Found this park when looking for a place to meet some friends. What a great surprise ! Beautiful, well maintained little park, complete with playground for the kids, great walking paths, BBQ pits, and neat porch swings overlooking the lake if you prefer to just set and swing awhile. There's also a covered pavilion that would be great for parties... More

This is technically my second time at this park. About a year ago we launched our Kayaks from below this dam. So we used the park for our toilet duties. But this weekend we specifically went to this park to launch our kayaks in the "lake" behind the Morgan Falls dam. My understanding is that this was originally just going... More

We just discovered this fantastic spot the other day. Several choices of scenic paths, historic spots with explanation, a great playground for the little ones, and a giant enclosure with lots of picnic tables, a fireplace and 2 massive BBQ grills. Perfect for a birthday party or family reunion. A beautiful, peaceful place to spend an afternoon.

This is a city park located above Morgan Falls dam in Sandy Springs. It's great for kids, picnics, etc. There are two short hiking trails, but the view from the park of the lake (Bulls Sluice) behind the dam is very nice.

A great fairly new park in Sandy Springs. We especially like the swinging benches overlooking the river.

If you are in the north Atlanta area and need a short get-away for a picnic, a walk, or a quiet sit on a porch swing, this is the place. It overlooks a reservoir on the Chattahoochee - they have swings arranged facing the lake for a peaceful view. Some pleasant walking paths, a great playground and picnic shelter. Nothing... More

This is a scenic little park with a really good playground and lots of neat features. The playground has recently? gotten shades over some of the slides and such which makes it great for a hot day. There is also a very large, unique jungle gym. There's picnic benches and fire pits but what I really like about it is... More

A lovely little park that is definitely well maintained. I enjoy coming here after work and walking around. The dog park on the other side is nice too. The dog park is fenced in and separates the large and small dogs. Only downfall to this dog park is there isn't much shade. Its a nice place to let your dog... More
