Athens Park is an environmental community area.
Understand that when you visit any of AAS's areas "you" become part of our community! Our community is dedicated to the continual cleanup of beautiful Lake Lanier.
It is strictly walk, bike or hike beyond the gate other than local families access on golf carts with AAS'S permission. There is no auto, 4 wheeler or dirt bikes allowed past the gate. If you decide to visit please park on the side - not near the gate. The gate access must be accessible for AAS (adoptashoreline.com), Forsyth police, Forsyth rangers, army Corp rangers and emergency vehicles. There are several trails but the shortest route ( 4 minute walk) to Bench Point is to follow the road directly behind the gate straight out to the point. Bench Point is one of the most beautiful views on Lake Lanier.
Open from 6am to 9pm, no camping or fires are aloud, no hunting and no firearms of any kind. Understand that Athens Park and surrounding areas are adopted by AAS an environmental community group that states " ENJOY YOUR STAY BUT, please, DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING EXCEPT YOUR FOOTPRINTS.
