Former West Cobb Plantation Now A Nature Preserve and Gardening Sanctuary
This 112-acre nature preserve in West Cobb County was once part of the Green Plantation. Today, it's home to scenic walking trails through native forests and open meadows. We enjoy the wide, well-maintained walking trails that help to avoid unwanted hitchhikers, like Georgia's summer ticks. The preserve also is home to a Cherokee Indian medicine and food plant garden, a great educational stop before or after walking the preserve. Located at the intersection of Dallas Highway and Old Hamilton Road in West Cobb County, Green Meadows Preserve is a Cobb County Park open to the the general public from sunrise to sunset.
I'm a trained journalist, global traveler and retired business executive who worked for more than 20 years with some of the world's best and largest restaurant enterprises. I left the business world behind, living in Northwest Georgia and writing about avocations including outdoor excursions, family-friendly travel, road trips, exploration ideas for active seniors and some of my community passions. I've traveled to 47 states and nearly as many countries, and I'm still counting up. I'm a traveler, hiker, cyclist, blogger, marketing consultant, community volunteer and local high school band nerd who previously has lived in Florida, Ohio, Indiana and Mississippi. I'm a South Louisiana-born French Cajun whose great-grandparents were sugar farmers, bar owners and reputed bootleggers. My upbringing in food-rich Louisiana and my restaurant industry career affirmed my status as an over-qualified eater. That also inspired the name of my blog, OurTravelCafe.com. There, I offer up a complete menu of our my own experiences, explorations and adventures, organized by geography and always sprinkled with some spicy, tasty tidbits and food notes.
