Make your plans now! We may have been limited to what we could do during the last year, no one told erosion it had to stop because there was a virus and we are finding more trails created by those that think they can go wherever they want. That along with the greater number of people going outside once the park did open has resulted a lot of opportunities for trail maintenance.
There are 20+ miles of trails that had 2,356,401 visitors in 2020 even with the park closed for about 8 weeks due to the pandemic. If you have not taken part in this event before you will be able to look back at what we have accomplished knowing you have contributed the trails at KMNBP better for those hiking them.
We will be replacing stack fence at Cheatham Hill and move ild fencing to Brumby Circle.
VOLUNTEER!! YOUR PARK NEEDS YOU!!
We will stay together working as a group & follow the instructions of our Crew Leader(s) of which you will be assigned to my group. We will learn the procedures of how to make our trails better for today & for the future.
We have been allotted 6 positions based on the number of volunteers we have had in the past. However, July has traditionally had a low turnout due to College and High Schools having ended for the year. If we have more than 6 sign up, I have the authority to increase this to all that sign up. There will be no waiting list for this event. This will stay the same until September.
|How to Get There:|
Take Whitlock Ave. west past Burnt Hickory. Stay on this road all the way. The name of the road (120) changes to Dallas Hwy. Pass New Haven Drive & Carriage Oaks. You'll soon see a sign that you're entering the Kennesaw Memorial Park (on right). Pass Dallas Circle (on left) and be ready to turn Left at Cheatham Hill Drive. The parking lot is about 1/4 mile down this road.
From Barret Parkway:
Turn east onto Dallas Highway (120). You will cross Noses Creek, Mt. Calvary Baptist Church (on left), and John Ward Road (on right). You will cross Hardage Road (left) which is also Old John Ward Road (right). Be ready to turn right onto Cheatham Hill Drive. The parking lot is about 1/4 mile down this road.
PARKING PASSES: Parking passes will be issued to volunteers at the time they arrive. Someone will direct you as to where to park. The present plan has volunteers parking in the field next to the parking lot. This may change depending on the weather occuring in the days before the event.
