Statement from the Recreation Director on COVID-19

    03/18/2020

    Good Morning,

    As the circumstances of COVID-19 change rapidly, I wanted to give you a quick update on facilities and programs. As much as it grieves us all to have to make unpopular decisions concerning our programs, we feel that the good health of our participants and their families are of extreme importance. With that being said, we have made the following decisions:

•    Spring Soccer season will be discontinued. Each participant will receive a credit or refund of $35. Credits can be applied easily to your Civic Rec Account for future programs. Please email or contact our office to make your wishes known. 706-342-0588 or email bmcadams@morgancountyga.gov

•    Baseball/Softball practices and games will be suspended at this time until further notice. Our desire is to play in May and June and finish close to the same time as we have in the last 2 seasons, of course this is all contingent on the health of our community.

•    The Aquatic Center will remain closed and all-party rentals will be canceled through March 29th.

•    The Annual Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for April 4th will be canceled.

•    MCPRS Community Center on College Drive is closed through April 5. Office only will remain open for business as usual but we encourage online correspondence.

•    All Passive Parks will remain open. Please use caution at playgrounds and restrooms as it will be impossible for our staff to keep disinfected.

•    Rentals from March 18th thru April 5th at all our picnic and BBQ shelters at Wood Park, Soccer Complex and Indian Creek Park, are canceled. You may reschedule or receive a refund if you desire.

    We ask that you remain diligent in using extreme caution and use safe practices set by the CDC. Thank you for your patience as we work through this. We appreciate your patience.

Sincerely,

Lance L. Alexander, Director

Active Parks. Healthy Lives.


Mission Statement 

To improve the quality of life while fostering community spirit and involvement for all current and future citizens of Morgan County by providing a variety of leisure and cultural activities, special events, excellent facilities and services that encourage health, fitness, relaxation, enjoyment, and learning.

Morgan County, Georgia 

As a rural and thriving community, Morgan County is concerned about the health and well-being of all its residents, from youngsters to golden-agers. Her citizens have enthusiastically supported an aggressive building campaign in the last decade that has resulted in a new aquatic center, new soccer fields, an extensive athletic complex with baseball and softball fields, a dog park, concession stands, picnic shelters and even a park with a disc golf course and walking/jogging trails.  Many of the facilities may be rented for private use.

Morgan County Parks & Recreation Department Facilities

Being located in rural Georgia has made it possible for Morgan County to acquire large tracts of land, allowing the department to centrally bundle its recreation facilities in close proximity to each other.  Click here for a map of all the facilities and for information about each one.

Parent Information and Orientation

Since 2004 the Morgan County Recreation Advisory Board has mandated the use of the Parent Information and Orientation class before any new participant can register and play.  At least one parent or legal guardian must take the class before a child may be registered.  Please call ahead and register for a class.

Class times offered:

10:30 AM Monday – Friday
Afternoon and evening classes are available by appointment.
