Splash into Summer

Your South Fulton Activity Bucket List


School is finally out and summer is finally here. For most of us, summer is way too short not to make the most of it. But life is busy and these days many of us find ourselves wishing we’d made more time for our favorite fun-in-the-sun family activities: a picnic in the park to celebrate the Fourth, an outing to the local kid-friendly adventure center, catching lightning bugs in the backyard, or a night out at the drive-in movies, all of the stuff that creates lasting memories. There’s no greater place to start for these great times and memories than at the pool. There are several great pools here in South Fulton: Conley Recreation Center, Godby Road Recreation Center, and Wood Valley Swim in Hapeville, just to name a few.

Maybe something different is listed on your summer bucket list.  Head out to Serenbe.  It’s one of South Fulton’s hidden secrets.  It’s where art meets architecture meets the Serenbe farm meets culture. July 10-August 2 The Serenbe Playhouse presents The Secret Garden. Get your tickets now.

No summer is complete without some kind of adventure at an amusement park.  Why not Six Flags?  Enjoy the new rides: the Joker and the Batman Backwards. Get the season pass for greater value if you and the kids want to go more than once. There’s even a waterpark included in your park admission.

Here in South Fulton and in the city of Atlanta, there is truly something that everyone can enjoy this summer. Get out there, stay cool and have some serious fun!
