Rivers, Streams & lakes
Nature is still free to everyone in South Cobb. Except for getting there early to find parking, you don't have to pay for access to our rivers, streams and lakes.
The Chattahoochee River is 465 miles long, which makes it Georgia's longest river. This river starts from the Chattahoochee Springs and stretches through Atlanta, the Alabama border, and even makes its way to the Gulf of Mexico. The Chattahoochee provides over 70 percent of Atlanta's drinking water, which is over 300 million gallons a day.
Sweetwater Creek is also known as "Jack Lake", is 12 miles long and flows from Paulding County, through South Cobb, and ends in Douglas County. It connects to other waterways including Powder Springs Creek, Butternut Creek, Noses Creek, Ward Creek, Mud Creek, and Olley Creek. Due to the size of this area’s wetlands, the creek helps reduce the amount of flooding caused by the rain.
