Here’s what SafeWise had to say about our Acworth:
Dubbed “Atlanta’s Lakeshore,” Acworth promotes both business and development of its downtown as well as tourism to the city. The city takes advantage of its proximity to Georgia’s capital while maintaining its own unique aspects as a smaller, more tight-knit community.
Residents also have at their disposal a variety of recreational activities such as preschool sports camp and adult flag football, sponsored by the Acworth Parks, Recreation, and Community Resource Department. The department also offers senior programs, such as Senior Chair Yoga and the Senior Citizen Luncheon, and special needs programs, such as Horizon Baseball League and Horizon golf, tennis, and soccer clinics.
