Parks in Forsyth County

Parks in Forsyth County: Fowler, Haw Creek, Caney Creek Preserve & Chattahooche Point Did you know there are 20 parks in Forsyth County? I was totally shocked by that number. And most of the parks we decided to go see, we had never been to. This past weekend me, my husband, and kids (4 yrs old and 2 yrs old) set out on an adventure through some Forsyth County Parks – starting our Park tour from the A to Z Summer Guide.  My kiddos were super excited to find out that we would be outside all day enjoying the pretty weather. I used FindTheBestRoute.com to map out our directions. You simply plug all the addresses in and then the website maps out what order you are to go in. I had a timer, packed lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. We spent 45 minutes at each park. The after we left we talked about what we liked and didn’t like. If you want to make your own Park Tour, click here for a listing and description of the major Forsyth County Parks.  I also made a passport worksheet to allow us to write notes. Here’s a link to the simple document I created – Playground Passport. Below, we’re sharing pictures & also a small pro/con list of each park.  Of course the pros & cons are from my perspective (Rachael) and in my opinion only.  Your list may look different! Fowler Park 4110 Carolene Way Cumming, GA 30040 Features: 4 baseball/softball fields, 7 rectangular fields, 12 stadium quality lighted tennis courts, 1 full and 4 half outdoor basketball courts,...
