Enjoying the Outdoors

Rain or shine, day or night, athletic or maybe leaning more to history and culture - there really is something for everyone in Sandy Springs!

As Sandy Springs continues to grow, it is increasingly important to protect and enhance the City’s parklands, connect them to areas within and outside of the city boundaries, and expand the park system. In 2019, the City Council adopted the Sandy Springs Recreation and Parks System Comprehensive Plan as a guide to creating a well thought out and strategically planned park system for the next ten years. Through various channels of public engagement, meetings and surveys revealed the top five amenities request are: hiking trails, multi-use trails, dog parks, community gardens, and an indoor pool.
