Activities to enjoy and destinations to visit in Cumming

The city of Cumming has plenty to offer for everyone . From outdoor recreation to city attractions and entertainment, below are just a few activities you may enjoy!

  1. Sawnee Mountain Preserve
    The pride and joy of Cumming is Sawnee Mountain Preserve. There are several facilities, including picnic pavilions, tree canopy classrooms, and an amphitheatre to enjoy. The park is also a wildly popular attraction among nature enthusiasts and fans of outdoor recreation. The sprawling, 963-acre mountain preserve is home to an extensive network of scenic hiking trails and open space. An interactive Visitor Center is located within the preserve. There you can learn about the ecosystem of the area, as well as the native woodland cultures of the region.
  2. Poole’s Mill Park
    Another treat for outdoor enthusiasts is Poole’s Mill Park. It is a 10-acre property where you can find a unique bridge that was built in 1901, which spans the width of Settendown Creek. Because the grounds are under private management, this one-of-a-kind bridge and its surroundings are maintained with the upmost of care. The rich history and natural beauty of the park has allowed it to be listed on the National Historic Registry, and regularly draws visitors from all over to see its wonder.
  3. Bald Ridge Marina
    Billed as the “premier marina on Lake Lanier,” Cumming’s Bald Ridge Marina sits on beautiful 35-acre property, complete with modern and state-of-the-art facilities. Although Bald Ridge Marina mainly caters to boating, fishing, and sailing enthusiasts, those who would prefer stay on the ground will still find plenty of things to do in the facility. Bald Ridge has lighted, modern tennis courts where you can work on your skill level and enjoy physical activity in the process. Bald Ridge Marina’s grounds are a thing of beauty– you may also enjoy a pleasant walk around the well-maintained, lakeside facility and admire all the boats at its docks.
  4. The Cumming Playhouse
    Housed within the former Cumming Public School, the Cumming Playhouse is a much-loved performing arts venue in Cumming. Aside from providing high quality theater productions and concerts, the Cumming Playhouse is also the home of the Col. Hiram Parks Bell Center for Southern History and Genealogical Research, as well as The Historical Society of Forsyth . Paying the playhouse a visit is an enriching experience! You’ll be entertained by the many shows playing on stage, as well as get to know a piece of local history!
  5. The Cumming Fairgrounds
    If you’re looking to experience some of the best local events, don’t forget to regularly check the Cumming Fairgrounds’ schedule of activities. This facility hosts a variety of festivities, from antique car and tractor shows to Quarter Midget Auto Racing! Two of the most-awaited events at the Cumming Fairgrounds, however, is the 10-day Cumming Country Fair and Festival in October, and the Christmas Arts & Crafts Show and Celebration in December.
