The Dog River Park is located in the southern part of the County off Georgia Highways 166 and 5. Douglas County recently acquired approximately 900 acres of land to protect the quality of its drinking water source (the Dog River), and to provide active and passive recreation for residents. A two-mile stretch of the Dog River will be protected by low-impact use. This land, the future site of the Dog River Park, is very pristine and plays host to many large sculpted rocks. These rocks create scenic whitewater rapids and are very popular with local kayakers. The Dog River, a feeder into the Chattahoochee River, flows throughout the property. The natural beauty of this land will make an excellent passive recreational area. There are future plans for trails with trailheads, parking and public access to the River, plus some active recreational areas. With the acquisition of this land, Douglas County hopes to become more observant and more in tune with the nature around us. If we can preserve native wildlife and plants in our parks, we can maintain the essential bond between people and nature.
