South Cobb, which includes Austell, Mableton, Powder Springs and South Marietta, has for many years been under redevelopment. Its proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, low taxes and moderately priced homes make it relatively affordable and attractive to a wide, cross section of individuals--from singles to young families and seniors with varying incomes, races and backgrounds.
The district is an area abundant with outdoor and natured-based offerings. Parks, walking, biking and hiking trails, rivers, streams and waterfalls--all make it one of the most ideal places for recreation. Six Flags theme park, the Riverside Epicenter and Dogwood Golf Course are not to be excluded from recreational assets. Additionally, plans for economic development to revive South Cobb neighborhoods are exciting with the prospect for expanding the menu of restaurants, accommodations and other retail. The area is a convenient and cost-effective location for visitors looking for a stay close to the major Atlanta metro interstates of 285 E/W, 20 E/W and 75 S/N--with a more quiet appeal.
Our deep legacy is entrenched in landmarks, like Sweetwater Creek Park and Russ Mill; the River Line residential and retail complex; Six Flags Drive Industrial Park; the Light Rail from Austell to Vinings; Mable House Amphitheatre and Mable House Museum and Arts Center. Central to the area and not to be forgotten is the protected Covered Bridge Historical District and walking tours. Too, South Marietta offers easy access to Marietta Square and its historical landmarks.
New and interesting activities are available from Smyrna, Concord and Springs Roads that easily link to the Cumberland area and Truist Stadium (of Atlanta Braves), The Battery with a variety of eateries and shops, as well as the Cumberland Mall. South Cobb's most notable attraction is the Silver Comet, a 60-mile trail to Alabama with its beginning on South Cobb Drive in Smyrna extending Mableton and Powder Springs for nearly 13 miles. Cox Enterprises recently awarded Atlanta $6 million to connect our coveted trail.
Planning a trip to South Cobb will provide no shortlist of things to do and places to stay for the outdoor and recreational enthusiasts, families or individuals.
