Welcome To St. Marys, GA!
At Parker and Pennington Dentistry, we often think about how lucky we are to work and serve a community like St. Marys. This practice is truly a family affair, as it was founded by Dr. Parker and then joined only a few years later by Dr. Pennington. Although not family, Dr. Greer is as close as they come since he was a patient of the practice for many years until finally joining the staff himself. Because we love this special city so much and summer is a great time to visit, we wanted to take a moment and share some of our favorite outdoor spots around town.
Where is St. Marys?
St. Mary’s is a quaint city located at the very bottom of Camden county right along the St. Marys river and just a few minutes away from the Florida border. Although small, this city isn’t without attractions and things to do.
Plenty to do Outdoors
This is the perfect city to experience history, nature, and go on some small adventures with your family and friends. Whether you enjoy fishing, golfing, biking, or taking in the sights by the water, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to check out:
St. Marys Waterfront Park
This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a picnic, watch the sunset, take a walk along the pier, or watch the shrimp boats come back after a long day of fishing.
St. Marys Aquatic Center
If you need to beat the heat this is a great place to visit. This water playground will be sure to cool off everyone in your group.
Gateway to Cumberland Island
