New playground replacement to include swings, slides, resurfacing and more 

A new playground is currently being installed at Poole’s Mill Park (7725 Poole’s Mill Road) to replace the current structure and will open in mid-Summer.

The replacement playground is designed for ages 5-12 and will include slides, swings (one handicapped accessible), an IKO ball climber, synthetic turf surfacing and more. The cost of the playground replacement project is $210,000 and is being funded by the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation 2020 Capital Replacement Plan Budget. The work was designed and will be completed by Great Southern Recreation out of Chattanooga, TN.

The replacement of the current playground began on June 8, and the playground will be closed during the duration of the project.  

Poole’s Mill Park also features a covered bridge, creek, picnic pavilions and the Cumming Garden Club’s Memorial Garden.
