Parks & Outdoor

Once you’re settled into your new home, you won’t stay home for long because there’s so much to see and do here in Coweta County. Fun and fitness opportunities help make any community more livable and Coweta County certainly has its fair share of them, with more on the way. A conscientious county parks and recreation department is planning appropriate new facilities for the county’s growing population. Additionally, Coweta recently became home to the newest state park, preserving green space along the Chattahoochee River.

Coweta County is a haven for golfers, offering several public, private and semi-private courses. Equestrians also make their homes here thanks to Coweta’s acres of breeding and training facilities, highlighted by a new arena at the Coweta County Fairgrounds.

For those who just want to stroll leisurely through gorgeous scenery, there are numerous walking trails and, for a special treat, you can explore the paths through Dunaway Gardens, a 25-acre floral rock garden north of Newnan in the community of Roscoe.

Cyclists can bike throughout the county on quiet country roads disturbed only by the occasional vehicle. For example, a ride out Smokey Road, just south of Newnan, takes you past acres of rolling pasture and horse farms, wooded stretches filled with birdsong, and fields dotted with wildflowers.
