Effective Monday, March 16, in conjunction with the Lumpkin County School System and to help prevent possible COVID-19 exposures, all Lumpkin County Parks & Rec programs will be suspended until further notice. This includes the cancellation of Opening Day, scheduled for March 21, as well as open gym time and all other programs for all age groups. The Parks & Rec department will be staffed and Yahoola Creek Park will be open to the public, but no county-organized or sponsored activities will be held. For individuals and organizations who have events scheduled utilizing a room rental at the Community Center or Community House, the buildings will still be available and staffed. Each individual or organization should make the decision as to whether or not to hold their event. For more information, please contact Lumpkin County Park & Rec at 706-864-3622.
