Mrs. Tritt is on the cover of the November edition of the East Cobber to celebrate the new 30-acre Tritt Park property purchase right next to East Cobb Park!
Mrs. Tritt generously donated 7.7 acres, and Cobb County purchased 22 acres with the 2008 Park Bond, issued in 2017 by the Board of Commissioners.
How many acres left to purchase for the future Tritt Park? We only have 24 more acres to go for the acquisition of the entire 54-acre Tritt property (see drone video here). These perfectly preserved 54-acres of rare hardwood forest are like a mini-Kennesaw Mountain in East Cobb -- perfect for hiking!!
Mrs. Tritt: "I am elated that the beauty and majesty of this special green space will be enjoyed by thousands of Cobb Countians long into the future."
Save the Date! Mrs. Tritt will make an appearance on December 2, 2018 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at East Cobb Park!
Friends for the East Cobb Park will be hosting the special tree lighting. This is a magical night where the community gathers to celebrate the lighting of the East Cobb Park tree, enjoy holiday music from local performers, and welcome the arrival of Santa Claus. The entire holiday event is free for all ages.
What makes the 54-acre Tritt property special?Discover the history of the Tritt property in East Cobb County here or here. The history includes Sewell Mill and spans generations from the beginning of Cobb County in 1832.
How Park Bond 2008 Made the Future Tritt Park Possible: The vast majority of money to purchase the 30-acre part of the 54-acre Tritt property came from the Park Bond 2008 fund, which does not impact the General Fund budget. Voters overwhelmingly approved the Park Bond by Referendum to allow precious greenspace to be saved before it would have been developed.
The Friends of East Cobb Park also made a donation in support of the Tritt Park property purchase, and you can support the East Cobb Park here.
