My family took me to enjoy the day outside. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and walked through the exhibits and several trails. My teenagers asked to return as it was such a great time!

Just go to expend a nice day walking and stopping to see the different wildlife around. Makes you think you are in the woods and you are a few paces from Roswell.

Love coming to the Chattahoochee Nature Center to hike around the trails, see all of the rescued animals and enjoy some peace and quiet in Roswell. There are often special events that are a must!
