Future parks

Hyde Farm

Hyde Farm is a future park, located adjacent to the Johnson Ferry unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. It will be purchased from the land trust which bought the farm, and will be paid-for and operated jointly by the county and the National Park Service. The farmstead and home will continue to operate as a working farm.

Other purchases

In 1992, TPL[clarification needed] bought an initial 40 acres (160,000 m2) of the property along the Chattahoochee River, which were added to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. That deal also ensured J.C. Hyde the right to farm that land along the river for the rest of his life, and TPL was granted the right to buy the upland acreage if the farm was to be sold within the next twenty years. After J.C. Hyde's death in 2004, his heirs sued, seeking to end TPL's contractual right of first offer. But the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia upheld the agreement. TPL and the estate recently[when?] settled the suit, allowing TPL to buy the remaining 95 acres (380,000 m2) for $14,195,000. Cobb County Government and the Cobb County School Board are two different entities or agencies. Both collect their own tax base from the residents in the county.
