A Nationally Recognized Program!

Those of us who live in Roswell know how exceptional our Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department is. So it came as no surprise to us when the department was nationally recognized with the Gold Medal for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management by the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration. Each day, the City of Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic, and Cultural Affairs Department works to have a positive impact on the lives of all those who live, work, and play in Roswell. We put our hearts and souls into delivering the best recreational, health and wellness, artistic, and cultural experiences for everyone—regardless of age or ability.

We proudly maintain more than 900 acres of parkland, as well as our Southern Trilogy Historic House Museums (Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall and Smith Plantation). And we host multiple special events for our community each year.
