Description
Azalea Park is one of a series of parks along the Chattahoochee River, and is located in Roswell, Georgia. Roswell enjoys an active and attentive parks and recreation department, and Azalea Park is just one of its most pupular destinations for locals and visitors alike. While many folks come to the park to take advantage of its access to the river, others bring families including the fur-babies to spend a few hours relaxing, having a picnic or BBQ, throwing a frisbee or just lolling about. 

The park boasts a large free parking area that is a good spot to park if you want to put your canoe or kayak into the river for a paddle. Azalea is also host to a number of walking paths and provides access to the Riverwalk Boardwalk Trail, which contains both paved trail sections and a boardwalk that follows the river's shore, and juts out over the water in spots for closer exploration of the river denizens and wetland habitats. Fish, turtles and birds, including many geese, patrol the mostly smooth and calm river for their daily meals.

It's impawtant to note that the face of the river can change after one of the periodic releases of Buford Dam, creating whitewater and often flooding of the parking lot and other low-lying areas of this park. If your pooch is on board, be sure to have life vests for both of you to avoid a mishap.

A picnic area equipped with a grill that's shaped like a locomotive is a whimsical touch, sure to please the kiddos, as will the park's pawrrific playground, that is unfurtunately off-limits to doggos. Benches feature views of the lovely river, many trees and manicured park grounds. A great feature of Azalea Park is free WiFi, so reading, game-playing and staying in touch are possible. Restrooms and a water fountain provide basic necessities for the human members of the family, but be sure to remember the doggy clean-up bags and water for the pup.

This relatively quiet city park features family-oriented activities and amenities, for you and your furry buddy, whether you head out on the water or stay on dry land!
