There are many stunning natural areas and parks in the Ballantyne East area. Equally as green and lush as it is busy and populated, one can tell that this community took a lot of thoughtful planning. Within the corporate
park, for example, there are a great number of ponds, walking paths, and natural spaces where workers can be seen walking or jogging on their lunch breaks.
Still more, exercise
enthusiasts can check out the Fit Trail as well as quite a few shaded or covered areas to sit and socialize with friends and co-workers over coffee or lunch. These small parks, scattered all over the corporate park, make this a great place to work. People employed in this area work for high-profile companies and have high-stress and high-pressure jobs. Employees can take a break from their desk or cubicle and escape into a small piece of wooded landscape that allows them a break from the stresses of their busy work schedules.
These parks, however, do not have playgrounds or children's equipment, as they were planned for the employees working in the buildings. For this reason, families with children might want to take the kids elsewhere, such as to McAlpine
Creek. The county also runs a local park, Ballantyne Park. There you can find 91 acres of nature to enjoy as well as a soccer field. The corporate park does not ban dogs but probably would not be labeled "dog friendly." However, your dog is likely to love Ballantyne Park. As a bonus, all of these park areas are free.
