The city of Acworth is surrounded by Lake Acworth and Lake Allatoona, providing a variety of recreational activities including fishing, boating, picnicking, swimming, beaches, and camping. The city is also home to 13 parks, 9 softball/baseball fields, and 2 football fields providing additional outdoor recreational opportunities.
On the banks of Lake Acworth is the beautiful Cobblestone Golf Course which was recently rated the number one public golf course in Georgia according to Golf Digest.
The City of Acworth is also home to many historic buildings and homes, and the preserved downtown area – a Main Street America city – offers a unique glimpse of the past.
Lake Acworth is a 260 acre man made lake located just southwest of the city of Acworth and adjacent to Allatoona Lake. A 1,500-foot long dam separates Lake Acworth from Allatoona Lake. The dam also supports a heavily trafficked bridge on Lake Acworth Drive (Hwy 92).
