CHAT Prospectus CoverSandy Springs, Ga. - Today the National Park Service announced a business opportunity for a concession operation at Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, with watercraft rentals centered at Johnson Ferry North and Powers Island. “I am confident this new business opportunity will improve visitor service and safety at Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area,” said Superintendent Patty Wissinger.  “The park's goal is to have the new business in place by next summer, if possible.”
