The Austell Parks and Recreation Department is charged with maintaining its park facilities.
The provision of adequate opportunities to participate in a broad range of leisure activities is an essential ingredient of life in an urban area such as Austell. Outlets for organized sports, places where one can simply relax and open space that adds definition to the urban environment are each important components of such a system. In rapidly growing, densely populated urban areas, preserving space for leisure activities has become increasingly important. Local governments continually face a challenge to provide and maintain a recreational system meeting the demands of its users. Austell has developed a park system that balances programmed and federal parks available for use by Austell residents in the region.
