Event Directions:

Approx physical address is 6156 Lower Roswell Road, Marietta GA  30068

GPS coordinates 33.984898, -84.387020

Gold Branch is on Lower Roswell Road between Johnson Ferry Road and Wileo Road.  The park entrance is between residential subdivisions and is easy to miss if you are not watching for it.  The sign is just a green street sign that says Gold Branch Drive. 

If you are coming from Johnson Ferry Road it is on the right about 2 miles from Johnson Ferry. 

If you are coming from Wileo, it is also a couple of miles but will be on your left. 

If you are following Azalea Drive turn left onto Wileo but be aware that Wileo becomes Lower Roswell Road when it does a 90 degree left turn in the roundabout.   The park is 2 miles further down Lower Roswell on your left.
