Named Best Dog Park in Summer by Atlanta Magazine

Atlanta Magazine - June 2007

trees and flowersplaygroundThe East Cobb Park is a prime example of residents and county government working together. The Friends of the East Cobb Park conducted a fund raising campaign to purchase the land for the 13 acre park.
 

Cobb County government helped with some funding and a partnership was born. The park has become one of the most heavily used parks in our system. A combination of slate and natural surface walking trails encompasses the park. Pavilions, open grass areas, creek overlooks and a playground offer the visitor hours of enjoyment.

For information on The Friends for East Cobb Park, see their website at www.eastcobbpark.org. You will find upcoming events, newsletters, and opportunities to become involved with this community group.

Brief History
Formerly known as the Bullard-Stockton property, the 112 acre Green Meadows Preserve was purchased by Cobb County in 2008 with funds from the 2006 Parks Bond Referendum. The Bullard family bought and farmed the property until the late 1900’s.  Originally it was part of a 400 acre plantation owned by William and Piety Green. The site saw action in the Civil War Civil War. The National Trail of Tears Association has designated Green Meadows as a historical and educational Interpretive Site on the Trail of Tears Historic National Trail.

For information about the park and future plans, see the 'Friends of Green Meadows' website – www.greenmeadowspreserve.org.
