Mountain Park Snapshot

 
Mountain Park is a city in southeastern Cherokee and northern Fulton Counties in Georgia. As of the 2000 census the city had a total population of 506.

Incorporated in 1927, it is essentially a large neighborhood, and is designated a wildlife refuge. There is no zoning for commercial or business uses.

It is bordered on three sides by Roswell and the west by an unincorporated area of Cherokee County; although the city extends into Cherokee County, the large majority of the city is located in Fulton County.

Lake Garrett is within the city, and downstream to the northwest Lake Cherful straddles the county line. Both lakes are gradually being destroyed by siltation caused by development.

Mountain Park Volunteer Fire and Rescue was formed in 1977 and is an all volunteer fire and EMS department providing emergency management services to the City of Mountain Park, Georgia. It also provides mutual aid to Roswell FD, Fulton Co FD, Cherokee Co EMA and Cobb Co FD. It is state certified and has roughly 20 members who are state or nationally certified for emergency services.
