Cool Off at Poole’s Mill Park in Forsyth County, GA

After our daughter’s softball tournament, a few families decided to go to Poole’s Mill Park for an afternoon of cooling off in the creek. It is a hidden gem in Forsyth County.

There is a shady playground, eating area, covered bridge and a creek that kids can wade in and slide down natural rock waterslides.

The kids had a ball and didn’t want to leave. We will definitely return with a picnic basket this summer!

Directions: From GA400 take GA Highway 20 west to Heardsville Road. Turn right on Heardsville Road. Poole’s Mill Road is 1 mile north on the right. The entrance to the Poole’s Mill Park, which houses Poole’s Mill Bridge, is at the corner of Poole’s Mill and Heardsville Road.

HISTORY
A one-of-kind passive park, Poole’s Mill is 10 acres of property that showcases a unique covered bridge. The Bridge, built in 1901, spans the shoals of Settendown Creek. After periods of disrepair, the structure was converted from private ownership and dedicated as a county park in 1997. The park, on the National Historic Registry, offers residents the opportunity to picnic, walk and reminisce about the history of a bygone era.
