Adamson Farm Two

292Located in Oconee County, Georgia

This property was donated to us in 2012. It is 54 acres of grass land with some remnant orchard trees.

The property is very near Ga Hwy 53 which is a rapidly moving from mostly agricultural to residential subdivisions.

STPAL will hold the Property and make it available for public benefit. It is currently informally used as bicycle track and play field by neighborhood kids. That sounds good to us. For now we are leaving it be although we intend to make some gentle improvements to enhance its value as a place for kids to play. It is not nor will it ever be a place for organized sports or a built playground. It is a place for imagining, relaxing and most importantly playing hide and go seek.

  1. This land is supposed to be for CONSERVATION. It is not allowed to be made into a PLAYGROUND.

    • Our mission is specifically the thing that you don’t think we should do: We own and enhance natural land for conservation, public recreation, agriculture, community development, and science education. There are other situations with other unrelated entities that may use conservation land differently such as wildlife preserves in which public use is prohibited or highly limited. But we have a more well rounded approach that was the motivation for starting the organization. Our name has Parks as the first item because involving individuals and the community on natural land is our primary mission. Our first intent was to make this tract into a park with walking / biking trails, disc golf, dog park, and as community garden area. But after meeting with Georgia Club residents they preferred keeping the land as farm land. So we happily donated this land to the Barrow County School System to be used as a demonstration farm for their agricultural program and for their FFA and 4H programs. This is a good and appropriate use of the land. The land we own around the Georgia Club was planned to be commercial on the 316 tracts and somewhat dense residential development on the Hog Mountain side.
