Friends of the Conservancy,
For over 15 years, the Sandy Springs Conservancy has been working hard to make our city a community with more dedicated greenspace and trails. Our goal is to increase the number of parks in our city and develop trails that connect those parks, creating a more livable, bikeable and walkable community.
Make a donation to help us Create, Conserve and Connect future parks and trails that ensure Sandy Springs remains a desireable community where we can all live, work and play.
Here are some of the Conservancy's most recent projects:
The Trail Starts Here – Marsh Creek
As a first segment of the Sandy Springs multi-use trail system, the Sandy Springs Conservancy is funding half the cost of a feasibility study for the development of the trail at Marsh Creek. This initial mile-long section of the trail is designed to parallel the length of Abernathy Road, connecting with The Park at Ashton Woods, Aria and continuing along Marsh Creek to the Tennis Center. The SSC envisions eventually connecting the trail at Marsh Creek to the Abernathy Greenway and the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area at Johnson Ferry Road.
The first FEMA parcel of land to be developed was Windsor Meadows, almost 5 contiguous acres on the banks of Nancy Creek. SSC Board Member and landscape architect, Molly Welch, designed and helped construct the Windsor Meadows Park and the pedestrian bridge across Nancy Creek for our community to enjoy. The SSC partnered with the City to identify more than a dozen properties destroyed by the 2009 floods, envisioning the opportunity for local and neighborhood parks on these FEMA parcels, and collaborated with the City, the HOA, and surrounding neighbors to create a park.
Park at Aria
Another 14 acres of wooded trails will soon be available thanks to the efforts of the Sandy Springs Conservancy, the City of Sandy Springs and the landowners who wanted to ensure greenspace was part of the family's legacy.
