Douglas County will celebrated the completion of the Boundary Waters Activity Center on October 22, 2021, at 11:00 a.m., and the public was invited. The center is located at 4996 Highway/Highway 166. 

The brand-new multipurpose center located in District 2 is a 30,000 square foot facility, the most prominent building project in the 2016 SPLOST program with an investment of over $7.5-million. 

“As Chairman of the Parks and Recreation Committee, I am honored to open one of the largest facilities in the Parks and Recreation Department with such incredible amenities that include two full-size high school regulation basketball courts. The facility will also provide opportunities for pickleball and volleyball games, an exercise room, weight room, and multipurpose room,” Commissioner Mitchell, III said. 

“This is a historic moment for Douglas County, and I’m proud of the progress we have accomplished and encourage our citizens to look out for more growth to come.” The groundbreaking for the Boundary Waters Activity Center was held in May 2020 and will be monumental for offering options to build healthy communities. 

“As Chairman of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners, I’m very pleased with our commitment to making necessary improvements and updates to our parks in Douglas County,” said Douglas County Commission Chair, Dr. Romona Jackson Jones. “I want to thank the citizens for their commitment through their SPLOST dollars and to trust us with building this magnificent facility. I commend Parks and Recreation Committee Chair Henry Mitchell, III and Parks and Recreation Director Gary Dukes for their efforts.”

 “This project is an inspiration birthed by the citizens of District 2, and it is a 20-year dream where a 500-acre, eight-park mega-complex built along the Chattahoochee River has been finished,” said Commissioner Kelly Robinson District. “This complex has basketball, swimming, football, soccer, baseball, nature trails, estuarian trails, and disc golf. Simply, it is a place where families can have all their diverse recreational needs met in one location.”

 District 3 Commissioner Tarenia Carthan added, “The Boundary Waters Activity Center will quickly become a family favorite as it has something for everyone. I’m looking forward to seeing all the families enjoy the new facility.” 

The Master of Ceremony was Mike “Stinger” Glenn, who is a 10-year NBA and television veteran, having worked for Turner Sports, CNN/SI, and ESPNU as a game and studio analyst.
