Saturday Park Event (Kennesaw)

I saw another cool event going on this Saturday, March 8th and the info is below:
Swift-Cantrell Park Celebration set for Saturday, March 8
(Published Feb 25, 2008)
A carnival-like celebration is scheduled for Saturday, March 8 from 12 to 2 p.m. to commemorate the recent opening of Swift-Cantrell Park, the City of Kennesaw's 42-acre community park located at 3140 Old 41 Highway, just west of Jiles Road. The event is free, open to the public, and will feature interactive activities, family entertainment and plenty of giveaways - including free hot dogs and sodas (while supplies last), courtesy of the Kennesaw Parks & Recreation Department. Pet owners are invited to dress up their dogs in their favorite Easter bonnet or costume and take part in a pooch promenade along the inner trail. Prizes will be awarded. Free parking for the event is located at Swift-Cantrell Park. Additional parking will be available at Kennesaw Elementary School, located at 3155 Jiles Road. Residents from nearby neighborhoods are encouraged to walk to the event, as attendance is expected to exceed 1,500 people. For more information about the park and event visit or call (770) 422-9714.
My Friend Tara says, If you haven't been to this new Swift-Cantrell park, you have to go. I go there and walk a lot and it's the best park for families. There are a couple of playgrounds that are AWESOME! If you have kids old enough to play on the playground, it's definitely the place to go (I can't wait 'til mine is old enough!). I would suggest taking the kids in the middle of the day, however, if you want them to play. Once school gets out the place is a madhouse. There are also walking/bike riding/skateboarding/skating trails that wind around the perimeter and then fields where people have picnics, fly kites and play ball. There are also two sets of pretty nice restrooms so you don't have to worry about using a porta-potty or anything! I think that once it's warmer and not so windy we should definitely do moms group there. I know this sounds like I own the park or something, but it's just that, as a mom and a family in general it's really great to have a place like this. Hope you all go and enjoy!
Check it out if it's not snowing or an icy mix on Saturday.
It sounds like an awesome park! I look forward to taking my son sometime.
