Welcome to the Statesboro-Bulloch County Parks and Recreation Department’s Virtual Recreation Resource Center! You can find a variety of fun indoor and outdoor activities that you can do at home and in your own yard. We miss all of our participants and we felt this was a great way to help keep your mind and your body healthy. Please continue to be healthy….remember to wash your hands more than you ever had, use sanitizer when you can, stay home with your family!
Continue to check this page and our social media pages (@sbcprd for Facebook, and @bullochrec for Instagram, @bullochrec for Twitter) for updates that will keep you entertained during this quarantine!

You can continue to enjoy the great outdoors while keeping a safe social distance! Remember, no groups of more than 10!
Go for a walk or bike ride on trails — Mill Creek Park offers a 1.25 mile walking trail, and the S & S Greenway with it’s trailhead across the road from Howard Lumber is a great walking/biking trail that goes to Pretoria-Rushing trailhead. The City of Statesboro also offers the Willie McTell Trail which runs from Memorial Park (Fair Road) through town to Sugar Magnolia Bakery!
Look outward while staying in–
Take some time to write letters to local nursing home residents. Create encouraging signs to hang in your windows. Draw pictures for hospital employees to express your gratitude. Make beautiful artwork on your driveway with chalk to brighten your neighbor’s day. Just because you can’t leave your house doesn’t mean you can’t bless others.
Hours of entertainment for kids and the young-at-heart!
