The wooded, 24-acre park at 7300 Brandon Mill Road includes trails, a community garden and a historic cottage that can be rented for community events.

The property’s former owner, the late Peggy Miles, lived on the site for many years until her death in 2008. Rather than selling it for redevelopment, she deeded it to the city in 2008 to be preserved as a public park. The cottage was refurbished and hosted the Sandy Springs City Council retreat in January.

The ribbon-cutting is slated for Thurs., March 17, 11 a.m. Until then, Lost Corner is closed to the public.

  1. No doubt our parks are awesome and, this is a wonderful gift left to the City. However, I bet even Ms Miles would think it is time to do something really significant and take the schools from Fulton County and, make them good and safe
    again. Sandy Springs n e e d s it … our children n e e d it.

    City Council, Mr Mayor : PLEASE summon the courage to do this. The new tax dollar stream would easily allow it and it is literally shameful that with it our schools languish. In our birth as a City our children have been forgotten. Investing in them will leave a more memorable legacy than anything else ! P L E A S E
