“Our city is blessed to have more than 11 wonderful parks like Hammond Park, Overlook Park and the soon-to-open Abernathy Greenway Linear Park.” Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul said. “Kids to Park Day provides an excellent reminder for all to take time to get outdoors and enjoy the healthy benefits of sun and fun. I hope everyone will join us on the 17th as we celebrate the City’s parks and recreation opportunities.”
