The city with its partners, the Sandy Springs Conservancy and the Path Foundation, developed the Trails Master Plan in 2019, according to a news release. The plan proposes 31.4 miles of greenway trails, side paths and neighborhood greenways. These would connect to 12 schools, 15 parks and green spaces. The trails would connect to neighboring jurisdictions.

The 10-year implementation plan includes seven miles of trails that would cost an estimated $33 million to construct.

The city has more than 950 acres of parkland in more than 20 parks. The hiking trails located along the city’s 22 miles of Chattahoochee River shoreline are maintained by the Recreation and Parks Department with the National Park Service.
