Fantastic park.  There is something for everyone to do, from walking the trail, riding skateboards, picnicing or playing at the park.  Sometimes the park is very crowded on the weekends but there is a path that leads from behind Kennesaw Elementary over to the park.

I took this information from City of Kennesaw website.
