Oakfuskee Conservation Center Opens for Events

LAGRANGE, Georgia— The Oakfuskee Conservation Center in LaGrange, Georgia, opened to the public and for events on December 1 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The venue is located about an hour’s drive south of Atlanta and sits on a picturesque peninsula with unobstructed views of West Point Lake and Pyne Road Park’s forests.

The multi-use, two-story facility is committed to environmental stewardship and will serve as an event space in the Southeast for corporate functions, receptions, family reunions, fishing tournaments, outdoor events and more. The 25,000-square-foot facility will host events of all sizes and can accommodate more than 300 guests.

Patrick Crews, chairman of the Troup County Board of Commissioners, says the new event facility is the first of its kind in the area, and he credits state and local organizations for partially funding the facility.

“We are extremely honored by the grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the donation from the Callaway Foundation that made this project possible,” he said. “We look forward to welcoming groups to the facility and showcasing its unique design, location and amenities.”

Oakfuskee Conservation Center includes a grand foyer with a fireplace, as well as a veranda, indoor banquet area, outdoor covered banquet area, outdoor pavilion, downstairs patio, brides’ room, grooms’ room, catering kitchen, offices, new service roads, sidewalks and nature trails.  Artwork created by local artists and an arrowhead collection discovered on the property will be on display at the center.

“We are extremely proud of the facility and look forward to showcasing it to the public,” County Manager Eric L. Mosley said.

The conservation center is also the new home for Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, which provides educational opportunities for thousands of students. Additional plans call for the construction of an outdoor amphitheater, lodging options, a wildlife viewing deck, expanded trails for horseback riding and construction of a new dock.

The venue’s design draws inspiration from its natural surroundings at Pyne Road Park and features wood and stone motifs, shades of green, high ceilings with exposed beams and other natural touches. Visitors will be able to enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking, disc golf and birdwatching.
