The ECPR (Elbert County Parks & Recreation) staff are dedicated to serving our community with great customer care and are willing to go out of their way to make sure that you have a great experience in our programs.

We hope you can take time to visit our parks and take a walk, have a picnic, play tennis or simply sit and relax.  The parks are  for you to enjoy during your leisure time.

In July of 2015, ECPR took over operations at Bobby Brown Park which is located on the Southeastern end of Elbert County.  We are excited about this new addition and hope to make it one of the premier outdoor recreation areas in the State of Georgia.
