Category: Powder Springs
The small city of Powder Springs got its name from the seven mineral springs found within the city limits. It boasts the ability to preserve the heritage of the past and provide a community where citizens actively participate in the decision making process. The development of an extensive citywide trail system called the Silver Comet Trail connects neighborhoods, parks and public facilities and has made the community very desirable for active and environmentally conscience residents. Powder Springs has many parks and recreational areas for those who enjoy fun outdoor activities. Tramore Park offers four soccer fields and multiple smaller fields for children. Wild Horse Creek Park consists of 53-acres that can be used for tennis, softball and baseball, football and soccer, as well as BMX biking. In a close proximity to Powder Springs is Sweetwater Creek Park, which provides picnicking, canoeing, hiking, and fishing. Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is in the area, and the park has many historical treasures from the Civil War.
