Although somewhat smaller and less glorious than America’s Grand Canyon, residents of Acworth, Georgia, visit Overlook Park far more often when looking for a grand time with friends and family.
Big things come in small packages, right? Well, maybe not every time … but that’s certainly the case with Overlook Park.
It’s on Highway 92, just a hoot and a holler from the bridge over Lake Acworth and Lake Allatoona. Stop by for a visit or to catch giant fish from the shore from 7 AM to 11 PM daily.
Pause for a moment of reflection from your car or walk down to the water. Pick up a rock, say a prayer and throw your troubles into the lake.
Please Note: No, you may not throw people who cause your troubles into the lake. Sorry.
Don’t overlook this 1.5-acre gift to us from Acworth City Parks and Recreation. It’s not big enough for you to get lost, but it’s big enough to lose your worries for a little while. What more could you want?
