The Bulloch County Recreation and Parks Department’s (BCRP) mission is to provide quality, diversity, wholesome parks and recreation services to meet the needs of the citizens of Bulloch County.
The BCRP is a public recreation department funded by the Bulloch County Commission and fees and charges collected by the department.
We maintain and operate eight recreation areas encompassing more than 213 acres. The department also oversees 28 buildings on these parks. Along with these facilities, the department has a good relationship with both the Bulloch County Board of Education and Georgia Southern University, thus allowing the department to use their facilities at non peak times and visa-versa.
Included in these parks are 38 athletic fields, 10 tennis courts, 2 swimming pools, 11 outdoor basketball courts, walking trails, picnic areas, playgrounds and picnic pavilions.
Mill Creek Regional Park, opened in 1993, is a state-of-the-art recreational complex which was funded through a 1% Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. Mill Creek, 1996 USSSA Complex of the Year, has played host to more than 200 tournaments including four national tournaments.
The Community Recreation Division offers instructional programs involving youth and adults. Community Recreation includes the Afterschool Program and Summer Camps, Adults 50+, Therapeutics (persons with disabilities), Instructional Programs, Special Events and Volunteerism.
The Athletics Division offers activities for both youth and adults.
Our services should ensure a better quality of life by:
- Unifying the cooperative spirit within the county.
- Communicating the opportunities and advantages of parks and recreation services.
- Being geographically accessible.
- Being economically feasible.
- Networking with community agencies and other recreation providers and schools.
