Memorial Park

Memorial Park is one of the most popular locations for families to visit. Nestled in the Five Points neighborhood, the park boasts a swimming pool, the Birchmore Trail, a lake, and Bear Hollow Zoo. Additionally, the 72-acre park is the home of Athens Creative Theatre.

Please use the links below to navigate the various programs and amenities offered at Memorial Park. Beyond those listed, we also have two basketball courts available to the public, fishing opportunities in the Memorial Park pond, and a playground.   Please note that parking is limited during the peak season and special events; we encourage carpooling, cycling, walking, and Athens Transit (Route 14).
