Spring has sprung, and all four beaches on both of our beautiful lakes will be opening for the season this month. We are looking forward to getting back outside, enjoying our downtown districts and celebrating the quality of life we have here in Acworth.
We know there are a lot of excited families and friends looking forward to the many recreational opportunities that Lake Acworth and Lake Allatoona offer our great city. Dallas Landing and Proctor Landing parks will open for the season April 8, and although Cauble and South Shore are open year-round, the beaches at these parks officially will be opening this month, as well.
For more information on our beaches and parks, please visit Acworth’s Parks, Recreation and Community Resource website at www.acworthparksandrecreation.org.
Last month, the Acworth Downtown Development Authority celebrated the launch of the new Mill District in downtown Acworth. The branding of this district brings excitement to an area of Acworth that’s rich in mill history, while expanding the footprint of our downtown area. We appreciate the investment businesses in this area have made, and we’re excited for this branding to attract new businesses to this special part of the city, stretching from the Cowan Historic Mill on Southside Drive to Newberry Park on Main Street. The city is looking forward to the completion of a new public parking lot on Maple Drive to accompany the Mill District’s revitalization. We are eagerly anticipating the district’s growth and are happy to include it in our beautiful downtown area.
Our downtown districts have some really exciting events coming up this month. The Acworth Art Fest will return to historic downtown Main Street April 15-16 with amazing artisan vendors from all across the region. This is a weekend not to be missed! On April 22, the Weekend Getaway Band will return to the stage for Live at Logan Farm Park. This free concert, hosted by the Acworth Arts Alliance, has become an annual tradition in the city’s Parkside District. We can’t wait to see you there, and we’re so grateful for our fantastic city partners, who bring such wonderful events to our community.
As always, for the latest information on any of our events and projects, you can visit www.acworth.org, sign up for our e-news blasts on our home page, “like” the city of Acworth on Facebook or follow us on Instagram at @cityofacworthga.
