5 Parks You Have to Visit in Milton, Georgia

The city of Milton, Georgia is known for its scenic beauty and natural charm. One of my favorite things about Milton is the abundance of green space and rural, small-town feel mixed with the convenience of an incredible location, close to shopping, restaurants, and plenty of other activities. With several parks spread across the city, it is a perfect place to take the kids to explore and enjoy the outdoors, especially now that the weather is warming up. Here are five of my favorite parks here in Milton, Georgia:

  • Bell Memorial Park – Located in the heart of Milton, Bell Memorial Park is a 41-acre park that offers a variety of recreational activities. Bell Memorial is an active-use park that includes four baseball fields, two multi-purpose turf fields, picnic areas, pavilions, and a playground. Personally, we’ve spent many a weekend there for our son’s baseball games. The park also includes extensive walking trails and is home to the Mark Law Arboretum.
