Lanier Islands Celebrates Local Cities with Debut of Community Days


Lanier Islands is already well-known as a scenic destination for charity events such as the Warrior Golf Classic, Pirates of Lanier Charity Poker Run, the Bubble Run and Susan G. Komen Walk for a Cure – just to name a few. We also regularly play host to can and school supply drives during Give Back Thursdays, offer free admission for active duty military and first responders to LanierWorld, and so much more. Why? Because we’re dedicated to giving back to the community that surrounds and supports us. Equally devoted to continuous improvement of our facilities and services for the enjoyment of our visitors, this summer we’ve devised a way to take the concept of “community outreach” to an entirely new level with the debut of Community Days.


In a recent press release, our Chairman of the Board, Virgil Williams explained the motivation for the institution of Community Days most eloquently: “We want the people of Atlanta and surrounding cities to view us as ‘their Islands.’ The closest oceanside destination is about five hours away, so we are proud to offer a scenic getaway with all the bells and whistles that’s closer to home. It’s the ideal destination for adventure or relaxation. They can spend the day or spend several nights in our LakeHouses, Villas or Legacy Lodge – which has been designated a member of the esteemed Southern Living Hotel Collection. We felt the most impactful way to make our guests truly feel like the Islands is theirs, is to honor them with Community Days – which, over the course of a weekend, pays tribute to the city where they live. The best part is, they’ll receive an invitation in the mail that affords them and up to 7 more guests with 50% off our admission to LanierWorld – our beach, boardwalk and waterpark entertainment district!”


Citizens of the following cities, you’ll want to check your mailbox in the days leading up to your designated Community Day for details about what to expect at these Atlanta community events and an invitation to save 50% off your LanierWorld admission when visiting on your select weekend. Community Day guests will also receive free front gate access ($15 value) on your designated days.  In addition to significant savings, these Atlanta community events will feature a main street festival feel with fun and games on the beach, community featurettes on the 5-story high HD Spectacular Screen, live entertainment, giveaways, photo opportunities with LanierWorld mascot – Bucky the Beaver and so much more. Best of all, between 1-6 p.m. during Community Days, Lanier Islands will select one lucky Community Day visitor each hour to win a Family Season Pass* to LanierWorld Summer Adventure. That winner could be YOU!
