Originally a stop on the Louisville and Nashville railroad, Woodstock, GA is now one of the fastest growing suburbs in the United States. This environmentally friendly community is focused on providing a fun place to live for the whole family.
Since 2009, the Greenprints Project has been striving to make Woodstock more “green.” This grassroots intiative has gathered a large following, and has accomplished a lot in a short amount of time. One major initiative of this project is to build bike lanes (or trails) along the city’s major roads. The group focuses on connecting existing trails as well as preserving and expanding parks and other green spaces.
The most prominant natural areas in Woodstock include the Noonday Creek and Little River. Noonday Creek (and its accompanying Noonday Creek Trail) is the perfect place to bring the whole family – even the dog! The trails are pet friendly, and there is a dog park near the parking area where your furry friends can play without their leashes. Little River (a tributary of the Etowah River) Is another waterway that is lined with well maintained hiking trails. It is also a prime fishing spot. If you love the outdoors, consider buying property in Woodstock.

Woodstock is subdivided into three main areas: Historic Downtown, Towne Lake, and The Ridgewalk line. Downtown Woodstock is a historic area that is filled with family friendly events. For example, the Woodstock Farmer’s Market runs on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer. This is a great place to find farm fresh produce as well as locally made arts and crafts. The residents of Woodstock are full of holiday spirit. The town regularly decorates for holidays, including an October “Scarecrow Invasion” in which the town is decked out for Fall and residents can vote for their favorte decorative scarecrow.

Towne Lake is master planned neighborhood that is located about 2 miles outside of Downtown Woodstock. Interestingly enough, there is no Towne Lake lake. The area was likely named for its proximity to Lake Allatoona. This land was originally a part of the “Thousand-Acre Woods,” an aptly named area that was a part of the Little River State Wildlife Management Area. Now, this heavily populated area is filled with shops, restaurants, and residential communities. Towne Lake is also home to two popular golf courses – Eagle Watch Golf Club and Town Lake Hills. If you want to live in the center of the action, Towne Lake is the community for you.
If historic homes are more your style, the homes lining Main Street were built over 100 years ago. While some of these have since been converted into businesses, others are still inhabited by the descendents of their original owners. These carefully preserved buildings will take you back to the days of the railroads. If you are interested in buying or selling real estate in Woodstock, you have come to the right place.
