The mission of the Harrison Park of Ellijay Board of Directors is to preserve and enhance the viability of Harrison Park by protecting its historical and natural resources and creating a safe, robust outdoor environment to enrich the quality of life and promote the health, well being and economy of our community, while ensuring a sustainable future and maintaining our small town charm.
Harrison Park was originally a farm owned by the Pinson Family of Ellijay. The Pinson barn still stands on the property and will be restored as part of the park build-out. The renovation of the barn into an event space that may be rented for weddings, family reunions, business events and more is part of the future vision for the park. Other future plans being considered are: to expand the walking trail, build a stage for theater and concerts, build public restrooms. As the community begins to engage in the design process, we will create a park that will become a destination for both locals and tourists visiting our town!
