Here’s what SafeWise had to say about our town:
Dallas is situated in the Atlanta metro area in the heart of Paulding County, which is Georgia’s second fastest growing county, and while maintaining its growing population, Dallas has put various police measures in place to keep its crime rate at a minimum. As a result, the city reported just seven robberies in 2012, making the streets feel a bit safer for the city’s residents.
This growing population needs things to do, and Dallas answers with Sara Babb Park. The park is a hub of recreational activity, including four lighted tennis courts, two baseball/softball fields, two volleyball courts, a swimming pool, bicycle trails, and more. Coleman Camp Park is another park in the area that offers plenty of walking trails, outdoor grills, and picnic tables. The Dallas Theater Civic Center buzzes with activities, ensuring that there’s never a shortage of things to do in Dallas.
