Kennesaw and Acworth have won accolades for years for their city management, top sub-divisions, churches, you name it. The Park in Kennesaw and Lake Acworth Park in Acworth are 2 of the best anywhere. The skate ramp section of the park is always crowded with students and the walking trail is too. My wife and kids go every week to... More

This park has a lot to offer and continues to expand its recreational services. I love running the paved trail around the perimeter of the park. The dog park is awesome but can be a bit muddy, although they have hoses to rinse your furry friend as well as water fountains to keep them hydrated. There are 2 parks with... More

One or half mile, you can choose, quasi-circular walking tracks lined with small dogwood and sapling areas.

From cow pasture to park, this place now hosts a plethora events nearly every weekend, which range from family friendly to events just for children/teenagers (I.e. movie night vs. Skate show?) Before rhe skate park was even built there were unruly teenagers. Unruly children might as well be congregated in one place to make them more likely to get cuaght,... More

What a great park. There is so much to offer from the skate park to the dog park. It looks like there are a few events at the park too. There was ample poop stations throughout the park as well. I have a small dog so we went to the small dog side. The people were friendly and the dogs... More

Would recommend to anyone looking for a safe place to walk or jog. Dog parks one for large dogs and one for smaller ones. Occasional free family friendly outdoor movies. State of the art skateboard park. Pavilions for picnics, clean bathrooms. Overflow parking at the adjacent elementary school with walk through gate to park in rear of school.

Nice long walking trail around the whole area. Great playground with 3 areas for different ages of children (downside on a really hot day is no shade). Huge area to play frisbee and such. They also have a small dogpark area. Recently added a skateboard park on one side which has been a big draw for skateboard enthusiasts. Nice family... More

The park was nice, but since they put in the skate park it is filled with unruly teenagers. There is a nice track around the park, an off leash small dog play area and a large dog off leash play area. Also, a large field and picnic areas. For kids, a nice playground. If you're into skateboarding, I suppose the... More
