Mary Alice Park is a seasonal recreation area that adorns Lake Lanier’s southwestern shore, not far from the town of Cumming, in Forsyth County, Georgia.

As of June 2015, Mary Alice Park is operated by Cumming Fairgrounds, an agency affiliated with the City of Cumming.  You probably won’t find this facility listed under the websites of Forsyth County or Cumming parks and recreation, but you will find the link below.

If there’s no traffic on GA Highway 400, Mary Alice Park is only minutes from downtown Atlanta.  There’s always traffic on 400, so it will probably take you longer than that.

Highway 400’s Exit 14 (Cumming) is a busy intersection with all kinds of services.  Market Place Boulevard will take you right to the magnificence of this popular destination where you’ll find beaches, grills, picnic tables, a pavilion and boat ramps for a day in the sun on shore or a day on Lake Lanier.

Mary Alice Park is where many of the areas celebrations take place, including some of the best fireworks displays on Lake Lanier.

You can’t go wrong by choosing Mary Alice Park.
