Caney Creek Preserve Now Open
On Friday, June 22, Forsyth County officially opened the new Caney Creek Preserve with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The approximately 63-acre green space passive use park is located at 2755 Caney Road, west of the intersection of Caney Road and Brookwood Road.
The park features 1.2 miles of walking trails, a dog park, two pavilions, natural amphitheater and a one-of-a-kind playground with an archeological dig site and water play area.
Caney Creek Preserve was the first of four new green space passive use parks Forsyth County will be opening. The other three – Haw Creek Park, Chattahoochee Pointe and Old Atlanta Park – are scheduled to open late next week.
Acquisition of the land for these four new parks was funded by the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond approved by Forsyth County voters in February 2008. Construction of the parks was funded by a combination of the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond, Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) and Impact Fees.
