(March 1, 2021) - The City of Sandy Springs will host a virtual public meeting on Thursday, March 11, 2021, to provide the community with an update of the City’s Trails Master Plan.

The City of Sandy Springs partnered with the Sandy Springs Conservancy and the Path Foundation in 2019 to develop a city-wide Trails Master Plan. The plan identifies 31.4 miles of proposed greenway trails, side paths, and neighborhood greenways, connecting to 12 schools, 15 parks, and green spaces and providing connections to neighboring jurisdictions. The 10-year implementation plan includes seven miles of trails.
Expansion of the City’s trails system was included as a recommended priority in the Comprehensive Recreation and Parks Master Plan adopted in 2018. With more than 950 acres of parkland, Sandy Springs residents and visitors of all ages can enjoy the many activities found in any one of the City’s more than 20 parks. 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.
