SANDY SPRINGS, GA — The city of Sandy Springs will celebrate the start of spring with a ribbon cutting for its newest park. The event celebrating the Abernathy Greenway South Trail Park will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, April 13.
Located at the corner of Abernathy and Wright roads and across from the Abernathy Greenway Park, the new walking trails will provide natural respite just footsteps away from the city’s hustle and bustle. The Abernathy Greenway South Trail Park includes a slate chip-walking trail, landscaping, park benches, bike racks, pet waste stations, and trash cans along the designated areas. Also opening to the public is the one-acre park located at the northeast corner of Abernathy Road and Wright Road.
“The Abernathy Greenway and its surrounding green spaces and trails are an example of what is possible when community and civic leaders work together with a common vision,” said Mayor Rusty Paul. “We are excited to bring about these pockets of green oasis enabling our residents to step away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the greener side of Sandy Springs.”
The Sandy Springs Recreation and Parks Department, in partnership with the National Park Service, maintain beautiful trails for hiking and exploring along the city’s 22 miles of the Chattahoochee River shoreline. All parks are open from sunup to sundown, except for parks with athletic fields and programming.
