Cauble Park at Acworth Beach
Cauble Park at Acworth Beach is my family’s go-to spot when it comes to playing and relaxing on any given day.
It feels like an oasis in the middle of the city or a getaway close to home. The playgrounds – adjacent to the white sandy beach, just shy of the restrooms, pavilions and gazebo, and dead smack in the middle of the most beautiful background that is Lake Acworth – are phenomenal.
My kids, ages 14, 6 and 3, love this park. For the younger kids there’s a ton to do from swinging to bounce rides. Older children will love the large jungle gym structure, and ’tweens and teens have the huge “spider net,” rock climbing wall and tons of green space to play anything from football to tag.
What I love about the play area is the shade provided by the canopies built right into the structure, the views and ample seating. Parents can choose benches surrounding the playground or sit in pavilions. You also can opt for the gazebo and catch a cooling breeze coming off Lake Acworth as you watch boats sailing by and people on the beach.
My children and I also love strolling around this expansive and serene park along the concrete path that traces the lake. We often bring our lunches and make a day of it, leaving with the kids happy and tired, and me very calm.
Features: Two playgrounds, beach, beach house, restrooms, gazebo, pavilions, grills, walking trail, boat launch area, fishing points and ample parking. Located in the heart of downtown, the playground is minutes from restaurants and shopping.
Location: 4425 Beach St., Acworth.
