Chartered in 1858, Alpharetta is a vibrant Southern city that is a great place to live, work and visit. It earned a place in Forbes' "Top Ten Friendliest Cities in America" list. Alpharetta is on its way to becoming the "Technology City of the South," growing through live-work-shop developments while remaining a residential community committed to its parks and recreational areas. The city has a beautiful 6 mile greenway system along Big Creek that provides a naturally inspiring pathway for bikers and hikers of all ages to enjoy. The Community Wildlife Habitat project is being led by the city's Natural Resources Commission and the project has been named "Alpharetta’s Wild Side."
