  • Amerson Water Works Park of Macon


In 2005, the Macon Water Authority donated this historic water treatment plant to the community for the creation of a 180-acre public park. In January 2009, the park was dedicated as Amerson Water Works Park, in honor of Mr. Frank C. Amerson, Jr., for the key role he played in making the park a reality. AWWP hosts a handicap-usable playground, the only one of its kind in Middle Georgia, the Atlanta Gas Light Picnic Pavilion, canoe launch, and under construction, the Porter Pavilion. Future plans include restroom facilities and a public boat launch.

A part of the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, the park offers a picnic area, canoe launch, miles of unpaved hiking and biking trails, bank fishing and a pavilion. It is a perfect setting for summer camp activities, staff retreats, group meetings, fundraisers, birthday parties, family reunions. AWWP is open from 1 - 5 p.m. on weekends. Beginning March 7-8, the park will extend its hours to 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on the weekends, with special hours on Fridays for field trips.
