Cobb County Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department strives to provide instructional, competitive and social activities for people of all ages. Cobb’s facilities provide the opportunity for Cobb County citizens to use their leisure time in a constructive, healthy, gratifying and inexpensive manner, and give the county’s youth the body-building and mind-expanding opportunity to pursue the recreational activity of their choice. Over 7,230,000 participants took advantage of these programs and facilities during the past year and with the continuing expansion of Cobb’s population, the department will endeavor to maintain its high standard of service to its citizens.

Special Olympics is a year round program of training and competition for children (ages 8 & up) and adults with special needs. Participants receive opportunities to increase physical fitness, demonstrate courage, and develop friendships with other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Parent to Parent of Georgia offers a variety of services to Georgia families impacted by disabilities or special healthcare needs.
