Our Hometown Passion Is Shining Bright!

As a finalist for the 2017 National Gold Medal Awards for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management, Alpharetta is truly honored to be named as one of the top recreation and parks departments in the country!  It is a testament to the continued support of our citizens, our Mayor and Council, Alpharetta Recreation Commission, and our many community partners.

Folks in our city understand the value and benefits of recreation and parks, both in their personal lives and to our community as a whole. Alpharetta is consistently named as a desirable place to live, work, retire and play, and the commitment of our recreation and parks staff is one of the driving factors of this success!
