The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area offers Doublegate real estate owners a beautiful nearby location to get out and explore nature. There is much to do here in the 48 miles of river that meanders through the northern suburbs of Atlanta. Spend some time on the water or explore the many recreation areas on the land near the river. A good place to start your adventure would be the Island Ford Visitor Center, located at 8800 Roberts Drive in Sandy Springs, GA. Pick up maps, chat with the staff about the best places to go, grab a souvenir to take back to your Doublegate home, and pick up an Annual Park Pass if you plan to visit often. Come just for a day and pay $5 or opt for the Annual Park Pass for $40. America the Beautiful Passes can also be used at this park.
Spend some time floating down the river. Rafts, canoes, kayaks, motor boats, and other small crafts are allowed in the river anytime of the year. Boating is available from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. Spend time with friends or family relaxing, fish from your boat, or move quietly to try to see wildlife. The river can be accessed from many locations, and rental equipment is available from area authorized outfitters. If you prefer to stay on the land, there are many miles of hiking and biking trails available.
Visit the park on your own or take advantage of one of the many events and programs offered. Rangers often lead guided walks, there are many volunteer opportunities, and also educational offerings for youth. Be aware that many events and programs do require registration in advance. All who live in Doublegate real estate are invited to view the calendar, find more details and a plan a visit to Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
