About Us

Friends of Harrison Park is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2018.   We are an all-volunteer group of North Georgia residents whose mission is to support our community and local government by working to bring improvements and amenities to Harrison Park.  Friends of Harrison Park meet monthly to plan events for the community and spend hundreds of hours each year helping to improve and maintain the park grounds.  


 The 26 acre park, once a working farm, is bordered by the Ellijay River and a number of private homes and neighborhoods.  Unique features of the park include over a mile of walking trails that encompass and loop through the park, a 100 year old barn and a 1 1/2 acre wildflower and pollinator meadow. Several benches and picnic tables have been installed as well as a recently constructed state of the art public restroom facility. 


Soon after its incorporation, the Friends of Harrison Park installed a Bluebird Trail.  After 4 years the park has become home to hundreds of bluebirds who populate the 6 bluebird houses and raise over a dozen new families each year.  The Friends of Harrison Park also has encouraged cleanliness in the park by installing several waste cans and dog waste stations throughout the grounds.  


The most significant undertaking of the Friends of Harrison Park is the ongoing rehabilitation of the Pinson Barn.  Barn projects have included the removal of tons of stored debris, repair and repainting of the exterior, cleaning and repairing stall areas and installation of new barn doors.  


Membership in Friends of Harrison Park is open to all interested individuals who are willing to contribute to furthering our mission.   See our MEMBERSHIP page to learn more.
