Fountains, Spray Parks and Water Fun in and around Forsyth County, GA

In 2010, I wrote about our love for visiting the free fountains and spray parks around Forsyth County, GA. Now we have a wonderful new aquatic center and spray pad in Cumming, GA! The choices are endless for water fun in North Atlanta.

We first visited the fountain at Mall of Georgia and have since ventured out to Suwanee Town Center Park fountain and Playtown as well as Duluth Town Green fountain in Duluth, GA. We also went to the spray park at Riverside Park in Roswell and are excited that we now have a new spray ground  at Old Atlanta Park in Forsyth County!

These locations are wonderful places to visit within 30 minutes of home. Pack a picnic, swimsuit and a change of clothes and off you go!

Playtown is a shady playground and the town center has lots of space for picnics as well as shops and restaurants. Duluth Town Green has shady areas, benches and swings, a playground and surrounding shops and restaurants that make it inviting for an afternoon. Mall of Georgia has lots of things to do around the fountain and makes for a fun afternoon. Add to these places their events calendars and concerts, art shows and the like are also bringing people to these wonderful parks.

We have also since welcomed the Cumming Aquatic Center and enjoy visiting with a summer pass. The new spray pad at Old Atlanta Park looks to be fun. Add to that the beaches on Lake Lanier and Lake Lanier Islands & Lanier World and we have quite a selection of water fun!

Want to stay home but need ideas? Turn on the sprinklers or set up a baby pool in the yard and watch the kids go. Have a water olympics and play games transporting water and water balloons. There’s lots of water fun to keep cool now that it’s summer!
