Town Turtles
Explore Sandy Springs as you seek out our Town Turtles. A work of art and a conversation piece, they sit on many street corners and throughout our shopping areas as a friendly reminder that there is more to Sandy Springs than meets the eye. These giant painted turtles are replicas of the Eastern Box Turtle, an indigenous resident of our area. During your walks along the Chattahoochee River you may find the living inspirations for these whimsical works of art.
