National Night Open opens Sandy Springs’ City Springs

The National Night Out hosted by the Sandy Springs Police and Fire Departments will kick off the opening season of City Springs, the city’s downtown redevelopment.

The free event is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, on the City Springs Green and surrounding Festival Row. Refreshments will be served.

“City Springs was created as a central gathering place for the community,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul. “As we officially open City Springs as a community center point, it is fitting we begin with a much-enjoyed event.”

The Sandy Springs version of National Night Out, a family friendly occasion that encourages police-community partnerships to make neighborhoods safe, will feature public safety vehicles, water slides, inflatable playgrounds and giant hamster balls –as well as police, firefighters and four-legged members of the city’s K-9 team.
