Come forth into the light of things, Let Nature be your teacher. - William Wordsworth
"The Natural Place to Be...Leone Hall Price PARK."
Leone Hall Price Park spans 126 acres and is designated a passive park. With natural
trails, meadows, beautiful Allatoona Creek running through it and an array
of native plant and animal species, it is a great place to hike, take the kids or dog for
a walk and enjoy the quiet respite that nature provides.
Friends of Price Park Mission Statement
In collaboration with Cobb County and the community, facilitate the environmentally friendly development of Leone Hall Price Park through community and corporate partnerships to provide enduring support for the public enjoyment of this unique natural area.
POINSETTIAS FOR THE PARK
Orders due no later than Nov. 16th - These beautiful plants, grown in a local greenhouse, will support both Price Park and a local business. Don't buy your poinsettias at a big box store! Gorgeous and long lasting, we have 5 varieties available for $11 each, red, pink, white, jingle bells (red with white flecks) and marble (white with pink centers). These plants make great, inexpensive teacher gifts...where else can you get something so nice for less than $20! Please reply with the number and variety you would like and contact information. Payment can be made upon receipt of the plants. The plants will be available for pick up and possibly delivery the week after Thanksgiving.
Bird Walk with Master Birder Angie Jenkins
Sunday November 17 at 8:00am
We'll be looking for residents and fall migrants. Any level of skill is welcome. Walk will be approx. 3 miles on natural paths, easy terrain. Habitats: meadow, wooded and creek edge paths. If you arrive late, join us in the meadow area. Take the left gate entrance and follow that trail to the meadow area.
Saturday, January 25 from 1:00pm-4:00pm
Many people have been inquiring about our next work day. This is a possible date, we just need to get approval by Cobb County. More details to come.
Three areas in the meadow along the central Meadow trail will be planted with native wildflowers and plants that attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. We all know how special the meadow is for these creatures, and this project will increase the number of available breeding and feeding sites for these species. Everyone who enjoys wildflowers and observing wildlife at the park will appreciate this special project! We need to raise about $2500 in order to purchase all the plants and materials we need. Plants and volunteer time may also be donated if you are a gardener and are looking for a special project to help with! If you wish to donate specifically for this project, just designate your donation for the "Pollinators Paradise."

Master Plan for Price ParK updated and approved by the Cobb Commission!
This significant project, and obstacle to moving forward with park improvements, can now be crossed off the to-do list for the park! The project was fully funded thanks to you, our generous supporters and the North Cobb Rotary Club. Thank you also to Pete Bilson, the project landscape architect of Marietta, Georgia, for his hard work at a discounted rate to help Price Park.
Also, look for an article about the project and FOPP in the Marietta Daily Journal this weekend! The updated Master Plan brings the additional 17 acres surrounding the parking lot into the plan, moves the location of the parking lot and restroom facility on to the 17 acres along Stilesboro Rd. and out and away from the Meadow, and allows planning to move forward for the restroom facility and playground. This is a huge milestone for Price Park! More news to come! Thank You to all the Friends of Price Park for your support!
