As Powder Springs has grown so has the need for parks and recreation. To help fill this important piece of our cities identity we initiated the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Department in the spring of 2017. The goal of this department is: 

  • To provide scenic public locales where the community can gather for health and entertainment
  • To create community programming designed to engage all ages from preschool to senior citizens
  • To promote sports opportunities for children, youth, and adults
  • To enhance cultural growth and fine arts in our city.

Powder Springs is home to two rentable venues; The "Coach" George E. Ford Reception Hall and the Patricia C. Vaughn Cultural Arts Center. In addition to these lovely spaces we also have a large Museum all about Powder Springs History and located in a historic home! The Seven Springs Museum in the Historic Bodiford House is a must see for residents and visitors alike! You'll marvel at the surroundings as you take in all the pieces of history gathered in this one location!

If you are over the age of 55 you'll definitely want to check out the Powder Springs Senior Center! Located on the Ford Center Campus the Senior Center resides in two of the original buildings from the Powder Springs Elementary School before it moved to its current location.
