It’s May, which means the end of the school year is just around the corner. Summer break is always a good time for the kids to have quality time outdoors. If you’re a current resident or looking for a new Marietta home, there are plenty of nearby parks to explore in the area. Here are four Marietta parks to spend time in this summer while you plan your next move. Of course, we hope to help you find the home you want in one of our communities.
