July 4th Weekend Beach Party with BOATING/SWIMMING AT OLD FEDERAL PARK - LAKE LANIER - FLOWERY Branch
Let's finish the star stangled banner weekend with a beach party/boating picnic on Lake Lanier at Old Federal Park.
Old Federal Park is an easy ride from Atlanta and can be reached from 400, I-985, Peachtree Industrial or Buford Highway. We have some boats committed to the event and hope to add some.
The park has three boat docks, a beach, a volleyball court and full facilities. This is a kid friendly event. Each member can bring a food and drink item to share as we mark the end of summer with a big Celebrate Atlanta beach party on the lake. The park is dotted with shady areas and we can set up there. They have a volleyball net too. If you have a table and/or small grill and can bring it, let us know. You can park by the dock where the boats will launch. This is also the location of the beach (see picture).
Please note that carpooling is highly recommended. The parking lot closes, once filled and only allows cars in after it is filled as people leave. We are trying to work out a potential alternative parking area.
Old Federal Park is located at 6175 Jim Crow Rd, Flowery Branch, GA 30542 (this is the location of the dock and beach). Parking is $4. As I said, it is suggested that you get there early (like 10 am) as this is a popular location with very easy access. If you have a boat, bring it as they have a boat launch and dock.
Parking is limited. If you are bringing something (besides yourself), please list the items (food, tables, grills). If members will car pool, we can expand the size of the event. You can park by the Publix at exit 12 and carpool over (a few miles).
So join us for a sunny (hopefully) day at the beach for a picnic, volleyball, boating and a fun finish to a star spangled weekend with a beach party, Celebrate Atlanta style.
