“Cool little park in Sandy Springs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

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 to be dog walk area, but as they cleared out brush the realized how close the lake is so the plans changed. The park has playground stuff for the kids, really nice playground stuff. Plus a nice toilet, and pavilion area. Lots of picnic tables. But we went for the launch area. You gotta park on top of the hill, which is where the park is, then carry your yaks down a fairly long hill to get to the floating dock to launch your boats. No boatramp, just the floating dock. So not the best but was not intended to be a yak launch either. To be so close to town, and have a place you can launch your boat, and do some fishing is great. Now keep in mind that you need to be prepared for the DNR. I've not had my fishing license checked in many many many years. I always have it but never get checked. In this little lake, all 4 of us got checked by the DNR who was patrolling the area in a boat. No big deal, just doing their job. They were very polite and helpful so just make sure you are legal.

“Wonderful scenery, great walking paths, a spectacular playground and enclosure for parties, complete with giant BBQ pits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

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.

“Local park with outstanding view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

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.

“Excellent Little Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

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