The Natural Place to Be ... Leone Hall Price PARK

Leone Hall Price Park spans 126 acres and is designated a passive park. With natural trails, meadows, beautiful Allatoona Creek running through it and an array of native plant and animal species, it is a great place to hike, take the kids or dog for a walk and enjoy the quiet respite that nature provides.

The Park is named after Leone Hall Price, who lived across the street from the Park. Mrs. Price gifted the majority of the land that is now Leone Hall Price Park to Cobb County and envisioned it to be a place people can enjoy for generations to come

Leone Hall Price Park will receive improvements because of a unanimous vote of the Cobb County Board of Commissioners on Jan. 9.

A contract for around $448,833 was awarded to Integrated Construction and Nobility Inc., the low bidder.

The park, 4715 Stilesboro Road, Kennesaw, is a 126-acre passive park that has a network of natural-surface walking trails through woods and open meadows and along Allatoona Creek with a small gravel parking lot.

Improvements will increase access and usability of the park with more parking and a restroom structure with an attached pavilion.

The parking design will include an additional connection to Stilesboro Road to allow separate, dedicated entrance and exit access, “greatly improving sight distances and safety,” said Cobb P.A.R.K.S. Director Jimmy Gisi in a Jan. 9 memo to Cobb County Manager Rob Hosack.

There are several Eagle Scout Projects completed and about to begin:

  • Kyle Bennett just completed steps from Stilesboro Road south side down the hill into the Park. You can now cross Stilesboro bridge to get to the other side of Allatoona Creek without getting your feet wet!
  • Bryan Croft Jr. just completed an excellent amphitheatre just south of the parking lot.
  • Dejon Brooks just completed three benches that will get lots of use at the Big Bend in Allatoona Creek in the Park. Easy for parents to watch the kids playing in Allatoona Creek!
  • Xan Rasmusson will be building 100 feet of trail from the base of the stepsalong the side of the sewer line thru the wet areas. You’ll be able to keep your feet dry!
  • We have several other scout projects available so if you know an Eagle Scout candidate looking for a project have them contact Dave Schwickerath, President FOPP, at daveschwick@gmail.com or 678-414-0430.
