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.

Memorial Park also features 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).
