Panola Mountain to Open New Outdoor Classroom

Stockbridge, GA

Panola Mountain State Park will host a public ribbon cutting celebration for its new outdoor classroom at 10 a.m. on May 22nd. The outdoor classroom will be a new space for children to play and learn about the natural world.

This project has been in the works for nearly a decade, and with support from Friends of Georgia State Parks, it is now a reality. The outdoor classroom has small boulders to climb on, a sound station, water works, and other unique features geared for children. After the ceremony on Saturday, the area will be open to the public.

Panola Mountain is a hidden gem for the greater Atlanta community as it is only 15 minutes from Atlanta. However, even with its proximity to the city, it feels remote. The park is known for its guided hikes of Panola Mountain, along with 30 miles of PATH trail, bass fishing at Alexander Lake, and Tree Climbing programs.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Panola Mountain State Park at 770-389-7801. Panola Mountain State Park is operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
