The NW Cobb YMCA Sports Complex is located near the border of Cobb and Paulding Counties. The complex has portable restroom facilities, so plan accordingly if you don't favor those facilities. The Sports Complex is located in a different area than the actual NW Cobb YMCA building.

Here's an overview of the area. The NW YMCA
Sports Complex is designated by the red star
in the center of the map.
Here's a closer view of the field location.
Cobb Parkway / US-41 is just out of the picture
in the area near the top right corner.

  • Around the 0.8 mile mark, you'll start to climb a hill as the road curves to the left.

  • The entrance is at the top of the hill on the right; it's an asphalt entrance area that leads to a gravel drive.
