The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area is seeking public input on potential changes to commercial service operations in the park.Commercial services are businesses operating in the park that provide services or activities to visitors, such as food vendors, guides, and rentals.

The park is preparing a study, termed a Commercial Services Strategy, to identify opportunities to enhance the park’s mission and the visitor experience through public/private partnerships. The purpose of the study is to:

  • Describe the desired future conditions of the park for visitor use and private business;
  • Analyze potential business opportunities as recommended by visitors, volunteers, current business operators, park staff, and other relevant stakeholders;
  • Create a tool for quickly and easily evaluating existing and potential businesses;
  • Prioritize business opportunities and outline an action plan for potential implementation.

More detailed information on the development of the Commercial Services Strategy for the park can be found at:
