Protecting a Legacy of Land on an Old Georgia Farm
U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA, 2003–2015)

“Hyde Farm is a true Georgia treasure and, with the increasing development around the Atlanta area, it’s only right we protect and preserve this special place.

This land acquisition was successful because of the dedication of the many folks in Cobb County, the Trust for Public Land, and the Friends of Hyde Farm, who have been involved in protecting this green space for many years. It is due to their efforts that families will be able to enjoy this tremendous educational tool and recreational tool for generations to come.”

About the Project

Six Summer Picks along the Chattahoochee

Since the early 1990s, Trust for Public Land has worked with partners to expand the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area by nearly 1,000 acres. We’ve had lots of time to get to know the river—and there’s much to love. Here are our top six picks for exploring the area.
