We have dozens of state parks in Georgia, each with its own trails, beauty, and history. There’s no shortage of places to get outside and enjoy all the natural scenery that surrounds us in the Peach State. It can be easy to overlook some of our great city parks just because we have so many excellent state parks to enjoy, but make sure to not forget about them when you’re planning your adventures! Today, we’ll be featuring one municipal park that has as many amenities as many state parks: Memorial Park in Athens. The city may be known for its status as the home of the University of Georgia, but it’s also a nature lover’s paradise, with several great parks. One of our favorites is Memorial Park: there’s plenty for the whole family to enjoy here.

For more information about Memorial Park, check out the Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services website.

While you’re in the area, there’s tons to do in Athens!
