Pocket Parks

Pocket Parks

OPENING FALL 2022

Our beautiful pocket parks offer benches, picnic tables, playground equipment, and more. Each has its own distinct personality.

Water Tower Park: Situated just past the Canton Highway entrance, you’ll find our water tower pocket park. Featuring our unique, elevated water tower welcome sign, which pays homage to the City of Cumming’s legacy of providing water to our entire community for more than half a century, this park provides a lovely first impression for guests to the City Center!

Kiwanis Club Joint Venture Park: The Cumming Kiwanis Club partnered with the City of Cumming to bring our visitors a special pocket park especially for little ones to enjoy. This jewel of a park features beautiful, modern playground equipment that children of all ages and abilities can enjoy, all with a unique music theme.

Steam Engine Park: The Thomas-Mashburn Steam Engine parade has been a vital part of the City of Cumming’s July 4th celebration for more than half a century, and the country’s largest collection of these lumbering antique machines (think 1800s steam-powered trains without the tracks) is housed at the Cumming Fairgrounds. In planning the City Center, City leaders wanted to pay homage to our community’s ties to the steam engine so we’ve designed a monument to these metal beasts in one of our pocket parks. Be sure to stop by and see this restored steam engine up close and learn more about steam engine history and their ties to our community!
