- Sweetwater Creek State Park
Sweetwater Creek State Park is a 2,549 acre Georgia state park located in the New Manchester area of east Douglas County, from downtown Atlanta. The park is named after Sweetwater Creek which runs through the park.
Sweetwater became an official state park in 1972, driven in great part by the work of the Georgia Conservancy, an environmental organization that was formed during a meeting at Sweetwater Creek in 1967. The park features wooded walking and hiking trails, the George Sparks Reservoir, a visitor center, a bait shop, and a gift shop, as well as the ruins of the New Manchester Manufacturing Company.
The Visitor Center displays artifacts that belong to Native Americans, remnants from the Civil War era, and mounted animals and birds. The park has rich biodiversity, geology, and history.
The park's mission is to conserve environment for the present and future generations through use of various conservation methods such as bio retention ponds, solar panels, green roofs, and a composting toilet.
