City Parks

Barnesville is home to eleven different parks that are located throughout the City.  The larger parks in Barnesville have been in existence for years, while others have been developed in newer neighborhoods.  Whatever your preferences, you’ll find a spot to relax, unwind, and enjoy yourself in Barnesville.
