Sandy Springs to debut new park

The city of Sandy Springs unveils its newest park next month. The ribbon-cutting ceremony begins at 11 a.m. March 17 at Lost Corner Preserve, 7300 Brandon Mill Road.

The 24-acre facility was deeded to the city eight years ago and the nonprofit group Friends of Lost Corner helped turn it into a recreation area containing a honeybee hive, hiking trails and a greenhouse. A renovated, century-old bungalow belonging to one of just two families to own the land will host community activities and private events.

The land acquired its distinctive name when many who tried to find the spot years ago often got lost before they reached the site.

The new park will be open from daylight to dusk.
