Disc Golf

Disc golf is played much like traditional golf.  Instead of hitting a ball into a hole, you throw a disc into a supported metal basket.  This is a free activity with no reservations required.  Visit the 18 hole disc golf courses at Wyomia Tyus Olympic Park and Dundee Lake Park to enjoy a relaxing game.

Fishing at Dundee Lake Park

Fishing is an excellent way to unwind, relax and de-stress and it's an activity that the whole family can enjoy together! Dundee Lake Park offers a 28 acre fishing lake suitable for bank fishing or small, non-gas motor boats. No boat ramp is available so boats must be carried from parking area to the lake. Fishermen of all ages and skill levels can enjoy catching Bass, Catfish and Crappie. This park is open and fishing is allowed from 7am to dark.  A Georgia State Fishing License is required.

Skate Park
