Your Atlanta Water Garden, Pond, Outdoor Living, and Kool Stuff in General Store
Directions from Atlanta (its easy!)
Find your way to the Interstate 285 (the perimeter road) and go to the top side of Atlanta. Go to the interchange with GA 400 (an expressway.) Go north on GA 400 to Exit 12B (heading west) on McFarland Road. Go 1.2 miles to the intersection of Union Hill Road (there is a stoplight at this intersection and a Citgo on the right.) Turn right on Union Hill Road. Go 1.2 miles to Wakoola Water Gardens - which will be on the right. You will have to look through the trees to see our rustic wooden building, but there is a sign out front. If you miss the building don't worry because Union Hill Road dead ends into Shiloh Road about 1/2 a mile on up the road. Turn around and come on back.
Directions from the hills of North Georgia
Find your way to GA 400 (it is limited access road north of Cumming) and go south. Now you can go all the way to McFarland Road (exit 12,) turn right and follow the above directions. That is the simple way. But if you want to save a few miles, get off of GA 400 at GA 141- Peachtree Parkway (exit 13.) Turn right. In about 200 yards you will need to take a left on Highway 9. There is a red light. After taking the left you will go 1.4 miles to Shiloh Road. Turn left onto Shiloh Road. There is no red light at this intersection but as a landmark there is a small field with farm equipment (look for the gourds strung on a wire) just before Shiloh Rd. Go down Shiloh Road for 1.6 miles and turn right onto Union Hill Rd. Go approximately .3 miles and Wakoola Water Gardens is on the left. The sign may be a little hard to see from this direction but as a landmark you will pass a new subdivison under construction on your left and Wakoola Water Gardens is the next drive.
