Hall County invites public to ribbon cutting for Tadmore Park

By Lawson Smith Reporter

Hall County Government is inviting the public to attend a ribbon cutting to celebrate the reopening of Tadmore Park located on Tadmore Park Drive off of Gillsville Highway at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1.

The park has been closed for the past 11 years due to budget cuts due to the Great Recession.

According to a press release, the park has received a few updates to its existing features, as well as a few new things for the public to enjoy. 

The ribbon cutting will take place in the new Tadmore Park pavilion, complete with free cupcakes and refreshments to celebrate the occasion. 

“Parks are an integral part of building community, offering Hall County citizens a place to interact and to enjoy sports and the outdoors. We’re excited to invite Hall County citizens to utilize all that Tadmore Park has to offer,” said District 3 Commissioner Shelly Echols, in whose district the park sits.

Other updates to the park include the resurfacing of the basketball court and the .25-mile walking trail, two refurbished baseball fields and complete resurfacing of the parking lots. In addition to the updates, the park received a new playground, new picnic tables and grills in the pavilion, two new restroom buildings, a new multi-purpose field and new concrete walking paths that lead from the parking lots to the soccer fields.

“This is an exciting time for Hall County Parks & Leisure. We know how valuable parks are to their communities, and we can’t wait to renew this offering to the Tadmore community,” said Brent Holloway, director of Parks and Community Services.
