In Forsyth County. Open from spring through late November. Park closes at dark. Free parking. Free admission. Poole’s Mill Bridge Reflect on the sights and sounds of a simpler time in the tranquil countryside of Cumming, Georgia. Pack a picnic lunch, take a leisurely stroll, and sit beside a picturesque, bygone-era, covered bridge. Located on 10 acres of Forsyth County’s Department of Parks and Recreation’s passive parkland property, Poole’s Mill Bridge is one of Georgia’s 16 scenic covered bridges, and the only historical structure in Forsyth County that is included in the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, in 2000, the Georgia Historical Society awarded a Historical Marker on the Poole’s Mill Bridge site. The weatherworn wooden members of Poole’s Mill Bridge are a part of the rich cultural resources that reflect the settlement history of Forsyth County’s first citizens, who laid the foundations for their homes, churches, farms, and mills along the rugged natural landscape of the sprawling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in north Georgia.
