Parks & Recreation

About Us

The Walton County Parks and Recreation Department was established in October of 2002 to provide recreation services for the entire county. An agreement was made between the Board of Commissioners and the Cities of Monroe, Social Circle and Loganville, as each of these cities had existing departments and facilities. 

The cities made lease and use agreements with the County for the existing parks and facilities on an individual basis. The Board of Commissioners hired a Director, (Jody Johnson) who incorporated the existing personnel from the city departments into the new countywide department.

Mission Statement

The mission of Parks and Recreation is to provide quality parks and leisure activities to the citizens of Walton County. Through the commitment and vision of Walton County residents and the Commissioners, Walton County parks will continue to grow. 

All of Walton County Parks and Recreation are committed to building on this in the future, and look forward to finding new ways to meet your recreational needs.

Road Closure

Criswell Road at the 1169 address will be closed immediately until further notice for a culvert replacement project.

Access to ball fields and other recreational facilities are still accessible but will only be accessible from the Hwy 11 entrance.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but know that we are working as quickly and as diligently as possible to make repairs.

We will make updates throughout the process to keep everyone informed of repair notices and when the road will reopen.

We appreciate your patience as we work to repair the roads and make them safe to travel.

Keep in mind that there will be traffic delays in this area. Please drive carefully for your safety and the safety of our crews.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Public Works Department.
