Woodstock is located in the southernmost part of Cherokee County, GA, approximately 30 miles north of Atlanta and 12 miles south of Canton, the county seat. City leaders in Woodstock have worked hard creating what has become one of the metro area’s most successful suburban downtown areas.
The town, like many, grew up around a small rail stop. The old town spread along Main Street and one side of the railroad tracks. The other side of the tracks was mostly woods. Today Woodstock is the fastest growing city in Cherokee County. With the growth of Woodstock at 70% over the past 10 years, the city has doubled in size. Interstate 575 and Hwy. 92 run directly through the heart of Woodstock so there are unlimited possibilities for those who live and work in Cherokee County.
Most of Woodstock’s growth can be accredited to Towne Lake a 3,600 acre Master Planned Community with shopping, great schools, churches, dining-you name it! It’s one of Atlanta’s premier communities with homes ranging from the mid $100Ks to more than $1 million. There are approximately 5,600 homes in 18 unique neighborhoods with great amenities, pools, tennis courts, and playgrounds. Towne Lake also has many apartment, townhome and condominium complexes, which brings the total community to approximately 7,500 households.
The revitalization of the Downtown area of Woodstock over the recent years has contributed to explosive growth, new businesses and a unique entertainment area with lots of unique shops and restaurants. The downturn in 2008 halted the project for a spell. But it got back up and going and is at this point running full-steam ahead.
The City of Woodstock is also home to North Georgia's newest outdoor music venue. The new Amphitheater at the Park at City Center just celebrated the grand opening in November of 2016.
Woodstock also borders Lake Allatoona. The shores of Lake Allatoona offer 25 parks, 8 marinas and 10 campgrounds. The lake is one of the favorite weekend destinations for local residents. What if you don't have your own boat? Boat rentals are available.
Woodstock also offers an amazing trail system and several parks. Olde Rope Mill Park features multiple mountain bike and multi-use trails, picnic tables, fishing, canoeing and a scenic overlook/fishing platform. A pedestrian bridge connects the south side of Little River to the north side where you can see remnants of an 1800's Rope Mill.
