REIDSVILLE --   A dedication ceremony was held recently to announce the renaming of Gordonia-Alatamaha State Park in Reidsville to Jack Hill State Park. In attendance were Hill family members, Gov. Brian Kemp, Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan and Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Mark Williams.


“Senator Hill was a true giant in Georgia, who had high expectations for Georgia DNR,” said Williams. “He knew the importance of our natural resources and state parks, and that if we are not careful to conserve them, they can quickly disappear. I could not be prouder to cement his legacy for all to see with the newly named Jack Hill State Park.”


The late senator was a champion of the park and made a large impact on how it benefits the community. Families can gather to enjoy camping, cabins, fishing, boating, golf, picnicking, geocaching and more. Thanks to his support, the park offers a large group shelter for family reunions and weddings. His support also brought new cabins, a visitor center with gift shop, a splash pad, expanded golf course and more to the park.
