The Chattahoochee Bend

get more from BRO

Georgians will soon have another state park to hike, bike, and climb in. The Chattahoochee Bend State Park occupies 2,900 acres of varied natural land in western Coweta County, south of Atlanta. The park was purchased several years ago, but the first phase of construction is just now underway. When opened, it will be Georgia’s fifth largest state park.

Construction on phase one has begun and will include a campground, a fishing pier and boat ramp, a playground, a day- use area and trails. The day-use area will be near the river. There will also be pioneer camping and more remote hiking trails along the namesake river bend. The park has roughly seven miles of river frontage. There will be approximately 10 miles of hiking trails, and three to four miles of mountain bike trails, in phase one. Members of the Southeastern Climbers Coalition have also secured bouldering access to the park. The park is tentatively scheduled to officially open in July 2010.
