Log in

While nearly 7,000 acres of parkland are permanently protected as part of the CRNRA, the trails and facilities in the park are being loved almost to death, especially in high-use areas. CNPC is raising funds to restore and connect trails, improve park units and visitor facilities, acquire additional land and create a history of early park beginnings. Below are some of the recent projects that are made possible because of the generosity of our our donors and members.  

RECENT PROJECTS


New Cochran Shoals Overlooks 

Construction will begin in March 2021 to demolish and replace three overlooks in the Cochran Shoals unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. The project will cost over $60,000 and will be phased over one year beginning with Pier #1 located closest to the Interstate North Parking Lot. The overlooks are directly on the Chattahoochee River and have been well-loved by park visitors for years. Link to press release


Jones Bridge Pier Replacement

The old observation deck in the Jones Bridge Unit was completely replaced in January 2021 and it is ready for visitors to enjoy one of the best views in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. The project was made possible by a $50,000 grant through the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta. Our partner Upper Chattahoochee Chapter Trout Unlimited has designed and funded a spectacular interpretive sign about aquatic species that is installed at the deck.

Multi-Use Trail Upgrade

We have officially completed the restoration of the 6.7 miles of multi-use trails in the Sope Creek and Columns Drive areas of the Cochran Shoals Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA). These trails are popular with mountain bikers, trail runners, and walkers. This collaborative project was completed in February 2021 and was funded by the Chattahoochee National Park Conservancy (CNPC), REI, MTB Atlanta, and the CRNRA, spending more than $50,000 for trail improvements.


Chattahoochee National Park Conservancy, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are proud to support our Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, a unit of the national park system managed by the National Park Service.
