SAWNEE MOUNTAIN PARK

Forsyth County
Cumming, Georgia

Forsyth County residents believe improving the quality of life in Forsyth will better its residents not only for the present, but for the future. As a part of this, residents voted for a $100 million park and greenspace bond. Both passive and active parks were a part of this overall plan. Sawnee Mountain has always been a landmark for the county, and through this initiative, Forsyth County chose Vertical Earth to construct its newest phase of the nature center, including approximately 7 miles of trails traversing the mountain crest in a loop system, additional parking, as well as a playground and passive center with pavilions. With this increased infrastructure, more residents may enjoy the natural beauty so prevalent in North Georgia.
