Frog Rock is estimated to be a 5,000-year-old carving, according to Ian Simpson with the Lithia Springs Water Company, an advocate for its preservation. Simpson asked the Austell City Council on March 4 to provide an update on the carving’s upkeep. (Courtesy of Lithia Springs Water Company)

Austell’s Frog Rock to be spruced up

Frog Rock in Austell will receive some attention soon from the city.

Brush around the ancient rock sculpture will be cut back, said Austell Community Affairs and Parks Departments Director Jim Graham on March 4 during the Austell City Council meeting.

Also, Graham said some trees will be knocked down to provide a clear trail to Frog Rock from the parking lot of Louise Suggs Memorial Park and the Frog Rock Disc Golf course, 6040 Spring St.

With City Council approval, other possible plans include building a gazebo near Frog Rock, setting up signage and building a party barn that would accommodate 200 people, Graham added.
