Parks, Recreation, and Aging Services
The mission of the Georgetown County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PDF) is to enhance the quality of life for Georgetown County residents and visitors; to promote a strong sense of community by providing a broad, diverse and challenging set of cultural and recreational programs; and to offer clean, beautiful and safe parks.
The Department encompasses three separate divisions:
- Recreation - Creates, develops, and maintains youth and adult sports leagues; operates regional recreation centers; and offers a diverse catalog of classes and programs. While Recreation does not directly administrate youth baseball, the Department does liaise with the four regional Dixie Youth Booster Clubs - Andrews, Georgetown, Pleasant Hill and Waccamaw - to assist in the creation of each year's youth baseball schedule.
- Parks Maintenance - Maintains and manages all fields, beach accesses, boat landings, and more.
- Bureau of Aging Services - Provides a variety of services to Georgetown County's senior citizens, including meal delivery, congregant dining, as well as assistance with transportation to medical appointments.
Collectively, members of the Department play a pivotal role during times of emergency or crisis by operating shelters, providing logistical support, engaging in debris removal operations on Georgetown County property, and generally supplementing the needs of the County Emergency Management Department.

Join the Herd
Georgetown County Parks and Recreation is proud to announce our new GOAT program. GOAT, an acronym for Georgetown Outdoor Adventure Trails, is a new program to help get people outdoors, moving and exploring. We encourage you to “join the herd” and walk, bike or run a group of 10 trails. View maps and location information for current GOAT trails by clicking here.
