MARIETTA, GA (CBS46) -

Lessons about safety were as realistic as they get Friday morning at the Cobb County Safety Village, one of the most comprehensive, hands-on safety venues in the state. It opened to the public Friday for Family Fun Day.

Cobb County Safety Village is built on a 8-acre site on Al Bishop Drive near Marietta. It's a small-scale version of key features in the county, including the Marietta Square, the Kennesaw train depot and the Strand Theater.

During the school year, the facility hosts second and fourth grade students from public and private schools across Cobb County. During the summer, however, it opens twice to the public. Organizers hope to offer more summertime availability in future years as the venue grows.

The second and final Family Fun Day of the summer is scheduled for Friday, July 18 from 9 a.m. to noon. Cost is $5 per person with a maximum of $20 per family. Click here for more information or call 770-852-3270.

Cobb County Safety Village was featured Friday on Better Mornings Atlanta.
