Sandy Springs Conservancy seeks opportunities to create, conserve and connect parks and greenspace in Sandy Springs. If you know of land or connection opportunities, please let us know. We are currently working on the following projects and have other potential opportunities we would like to pursue.
With your help – we can move these and other projects along to fruition for all to enjoy!!
Expansion of Allen Road Park
This popular three-acre park, with a walking trail and playing fields near l-285 and Lake Forest Drive, will grow by 1.5 acres. The Sandy Springs Conservancy has been building support for this park expansion with property owners and the City for a number of years, and we are excited to be involved in making the park bigger and better.
Enhanced access to the Chattahoochee River
Having developed trails at the City Park close to Island Ford, we at SSC are excited to work with NPS and COSS to provide our citizens with additional opportunities at the riverfront. Located off of Roberts Drive, the property has 270 feet of river frontage and sits between two parcels of land that are part of the Island Ford Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, a much beloved hiking and fishing destination in north Sandy Springs.
Staged implementation of the Sandy Springs Trails Master Plan by PATH (A collaborative project with Sandy Springs Conservancy).
Green connections and Multi-use paths along Mt. Vernon Highway
Increased Regional connectivity with a trail on the Bridge across the Chattahoochee River at Roswell Road
Access from Roswell Road to the River at Morgan Falls
Green enhancements and connectivity along Roswell Road
Marsh Creek trails, connecting Roswell Road to Glenridge Drive, the Park at Aria and Glenlake Business District
AND . .. many other expansions, enhancements and additions are “on the table” for the future. We need your volunteer help, support and ideas to move these and other opportunities and projects forward.
