The second Saturday of each month Cobb PARKS conducts a free Hyde Farm Walking Tour (photo above) at the 1840s-era working farm (721 Hyde Road), starting at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.
They last 45 minutes each, and will show participants terraced agricultural fields, lowland pastures/old fields, the orchard, the home site, the meadows and the farm outbuilding, as well as a pond stacked with catfish and bass.
A busy weekend is in store at East Cobb Park (3322 Roswell Road), with the monthly meeting of the newly formed East Cobb Park Garden Club from 10-12 Saturday.
The group is undertaking its initial projects to enhance the property, including constructing gardens, beautify trails and other tasks. Meet at the gazebo in the upper parking lot overlooking the park.
Also from 10-12 Saturday is an open house for the Cobb Mobility SPLOST, a proposed sales tax referendum that could take place in 2024. Cobb DOT staff will be presenting information at the Tim D. Lee Senior Center (3332 Sandy Plains Road) and citizens can take part in a survey (see our recent coverage of Commissioner Jerica Richardson’s town hall for background).
On Sunday, the third annual Aloha to Aging Fall Festival takes place from 2-6 at Covenant Presbyterian Church (2880 Canton Road).
More than 50 vendors, businesses and crafters will be on hand as well as music, dancing, games and prizes for all ages.
There will be raffle prizes, petting goats, a pickleball clinic and a kids zone. Admission is free.
Also on Friday afternoon, Music in the Park returns to East Cobb Park from 4-6, featuring Man Hands Lizzie, an Atlanta musician who regularly performs at Kastaways in Marietta.
You can bring a blanket/chairs and food to the back quad concert shell area.
It’s the second of three free concerts this month organized by the Friends for the East Cobb Park and sponsored by Wellstar.
