Volunteer Park Agility Course Challenge for February 2021
For the month of February 2021, we are challenging our citizens to complete the Agility Course located at Volunteer Park. Spend an afternoon at Volunteer Park, video yourself (or have a friend) running the entire course, or as much as you can. Upload the video to a social media platform (Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter) and tag Spalding County. Include the time it took you to run the course as well as the #HealthyMeSpalding and #inSpalding. We’re running the challenge the entire month of February and then ask you to stay tune for the first week of March as we announce another surprise.
*For those who do not have social media and still want to participate you can email your video to Rachel Conort, Citizen Engagement Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org and in the subject line place “Agility Course Challenge – February 2021.”
We are so excited to introduce our citizens to another “gem” located in our very own county.
Fishing at Dundee Lake Park
Fishing is an excellent way to unwind, relax and de-stress and it’s an activity that the whole family can enjoy together! Dundee Lake Park offers a 28 acre fishing lake suitable for bank fishing or small, non-gas motor boats. No boat ramp is available so boats must be carried from parking area to the lake. Fishermen of all ages and skill levels can enjoy catching Bass, Catfish and Crappie. This park is open and fishing is allowed from 7am to dark. A State Fishing License is required from Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources.
The Grind Skate Park is located within Griffin City Park on Camp Northern Road, Griffin. It features a 6 foot half pipe, several quarter pipes, bank to bank, multiple event fun box, various grinding rails and more. Only skateboards and roller blades are permitted. Helmets and safety gear are recommended.
Named in honor of Ernest Howard Atkinson who owned the original site, Ernie’s Trail is located at Wyomia Tyus Olympic Park. The trail, with its natural beauty and area teeming with both flora and fauna, can be used for both peaceful respites and classroom settings.
