Are pets allowed in the park?
Yes, pets are allowed in the park (outdoors only). As adopted in Ordinance No. 2006-02-11 Chapter 8 Article 2 Section 4 (i): Pets. All pets must be on a leash and the owner is responsible for disposal of pet waste. For your convenience, pet waste bags are provided at several locations on-site.
Can your park be used for group events?
While small groups are allowed to use the park for picnics and similar brief gatherings, there is no guarantee that the park will be open for your preferred day/time. To ensure your group will have exclusive access to the park, as well as indoor amenities, it must be a paid rental. Contact us to learn more.
Do I need a special permit to have an event?
If your event will affect the surrounding public space (i.e. street closures) or be open to the public (i.e. ticket sales), you may be required to obtain a permit through the City of Sandy Springs. Visit the city website to learn more.
Do you have on-site parking?
There is free parking at our administrative building off Blue Stone Road, as well as in the HSS-labeled lot off Sandy Springs Place. Street parking is open to the public but parking at CityWalk is for customers only and towing is enforced. Additional lots may be available on weekends and weeknights. Download our parking map here.
Is alcohol permitted in the park?
Alcohol is NOT permitted. As adopted in City Ordinance #2006-02-11, Chapter 8, Article 2, Section 4 (a): Alcoholic beverages. It shall be unlawful for any person to possess and/or consume any alcoholic beverage, or be under the influence of alcoholic, malt and/or vinous beverage, within in any public park and/or within any building or facility under the supervision of the Sandy Springs Recreation and Parks Department unless such usage is expressly permitted by signage or published rules of the particular park or recreation building.
