Home to various festivals including the Scottish Festival, the Butternut Creek Festival and
the Sorghum Festival, Meeks Park is one of the most scenic parks in the North Georgia
Mountains. One mile west of Blairsville, Meeks Park is found on Highway 515 across from
North Georgia Technical College.
The park is home to seven ball fields, four batting cages, a playground, a skateboard park,
basketball court, tennis courts, an 18-hole disc golf course, splash pad and swimming pool,
paved and unpaved nature trails, kayak and canoe launch on the Nottely River, a dog park,
several pavilions and other amenities.
A pet-friendly dog park across the street from the main park has over a mile of trails, a
fenced in off-leash area, two pens, clean-up bags, lake access for Fido to swim, and a
state-of-the-art doggie drinking fountain!
Butternut Creek and Nottely River flow through the park, making for scenic picnic spots and
places to throw in a fishing line. There are plenty of tables, benches and swings for
relaxing under the shady oaks.
