Happening Now

Today when you visit Lake Lanier Olympic Park you will experience so much more than Canoe/Kayak and Rowing. On your visit you can relax on the sandy beach, enjoy a picnic and a good book in Fields Memorial Butterfly garden, or take a walk through the park enjoying the wonderful art.  If you enjoy fishing, there’s a great shoreline to cast a line or a boat ramp providing year-round access to Lake Lanier. Or you may enjoy simply taking in the moment, knowing you are walking where Champions are made and recreating where the best of the best come every year to train and compete. 

Keep your eyes on the calendar. Concerts and festivals are happening all the time.
