Georgia Trend Recognizes Chickamauga as “Live, Work, Play” City

Chickamauga, GA – One of Walker County’s four cities was recently recognized by Georgia Trend magazine with a Live, Work, Play award.  Chickamauga, and just eight other cities across the entire state of Georgia, earned the designation.  Doing so puts Chickamauga in the same quality of life conversation as powerhouse cities like Cartersville, Athens and Decatur.

The Live, Work, Play award highlights a city’s efforts to improve or add local amenities, maintain a strong workforce to keep the local economy flowing and exhibit a friendly, yet conscious community. Recreational events like Ironman, Movies in the Park and First Fridays helped Chickamauga set itself apart, while still being able to maintain its rich antebellum history.

Georgia Trend described Chickamauga as, “a family-friendly city that boasts sidewalks, a highly ranked (seventh in the state) school system and the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, the oldest military park in the country and a huge tourism driver.”

The magazine also highlighted Chickamauga’s partnership with Walker County to designate the city as a Preserve America Community, and the creation of Historic Overlay Districts to protect the gateway into the city.
