Would you like to give input into what Mableton Square will look like when it’s finished? This Friday, October 12, 2-6 p.m. is your chance.

Cobb PARKS staff and the Mableton Improvement Coalition Parks Committee will be on site at the square to collect your input and answer questions. The square is adjacent to Mableton Elementary School, located at 5220 Church Street, Mableton.

According to an email from Cobb PARKS, “The square is part of the master plan for Mableton’s historic center. It was constructed with Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax funding and is actually larger than the original design. Given the size, there is opportunity for uses that weren’t envisioned in the planning stages.”

The square was officially opened with a ribbon-cutting in April.


An email from Cobb County District 4 Commissioner Lisa Cupid stated, “Right now, there isn’t funding for construction. The first step, though, is a plan. Then funding sources can be identified. And that’s where you come in. We need to hear from you and get your ideas. This event will give us the chance to talk in person and for you to talk with experts who can answer your questions and evaluate your ideas.”

Food from The Real Mexican Vittles food tent will be available for purchase. Parking is limited, so Cobb PARKS asks that you be patient and courteous.
