Want More Parks?
Cobb County bought over 300 acres of passive park land  under the 2006 Parks Bond Program.The program was so successful, Cobb residents voted for another $40M Parks Bond in 2008, which finally received partial funding in 2017.  More information is available at the Cobb Parks Coalition web site.
One of the most noticeable things about the River Line Historic Area is how "green" it is.  Protecting and restoring the natural resources within the River Line Historic Area will help maintain its "green" character, preserve wildlife habitat, and provide recreation and social interaction opportunities.
