This basketball court is one more improvement in this neighborhood park to better serve the residents of the area.

All great communities happen with involvement by many people. Council member Tyson Jackson pursued this neighborhood park with vision and tireless advocacy. The Mayor and City Council allocated funds for the conversion of this area to a Community Park, with playground, basketball courts, and more to come. The Social Circle Kiwanis Club took on the improvement of Burk Park as a community service project. The Walton County Healthcare Foundation provided grant funds to purchase the basketball goals. The staff of the City Public Works Department and Police Department invested time and care in this park. Area residents are supervising and using this park , and helping to keep it clean and safe.

This community effort and involvement is another example of why we tag Social Circle as Georgia’s Greatest Little Town.
