Planning and Development

Dear stakeholders,

The Rail-with-Trail study is in its final stage.  A final plan presentation meeting was held on September 30, 2010.  Thanks to all who contributed to this study!

Please let us know if you have any question or comments or if you encounter any problems with the files online.


Spalding County Parks, Public Grounds and Leisure Services is an agency which is committed to excellence and in being so a Comprehensive Master Plan has been developed for the entire park system in Spalding County. A Master Plan evaluates the growth and needs of a community and then provides a road map establishing specific goals for the development of needed parks, facilities and programs. The first Master Plan was completed in 1993 and as a result it was determined that Spalding County needed a Regional Park thus resulting in the building of Wyomia Tyus Olympic Park and the acquisition of Dundee Lake Park.  This is an example of the purpose of developing a plan for the future. The latest Comprehensive Master plan was completed in 2008 and projects the needs of the entire county with goals for the next 5 and 10 years.  A Master Plan of Dundee Lake Park was completed in 2007.  Please take a look at what the future of our park system could be providing public and local government support.
