Sandy Springs sets opening of Windsor Meadows Park

Sandy Springs invites residents to the official dedication and ribbon-cutting of the new Windsor Meadows Park, set for 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14.

The four-acre park is at Windsor Parkway and Northland Drive. It replaces three houses destroyed when nearby Nancy Creek flooded in October 2009. The city purchased the land through a flood hazard mitigation grant program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Georgia Emergency Management Agency.

The area has limited parking, city officials said, and neighbors are encouraged to walk or carpool. Temporary roadside parking will be available east of the park on Windsor Parkway.

The Sandy Springs Conservancy's concept plan for Windows Meadows calls for a passive park with walking trail, small meadows and overlooks of the creek, according to a Conservancy website. A pedestrian bridge to the park opened in June 2017.
