The Civic Center which was built in 1975 is currently undergoing much needed electrical renovations. It is our goal to keep the building open while undergoing upgrades.

 Rentals and public use may encounter some challenges concerning parking, doors being locked/blocked and other access issues. The electrical project is an extensive project that will last for several months.

 We appreciate your patience as we work through  the next several months. The end result will have the Civic Center electrical systems up-to-date and be able to serve the community without electrical failures.

The Thomaston Upson Recreation Department began in the early 1970’s.  The Civic Center was built in 1975 and became the home of the Recreation Department.  The Thomaston Upson Recreation Department is a joint project with the City of Thomaston, County of Upson and the Thomaston Upson Recreation Commission. 

The Recreation Department includes the Civic Center, Thurston Park, Potato Creek Heights Park, Lincoln Park, Yatesville and Salem community parks.  The Department also includes 8 soccer fields, 4 baseball game fields, 3 baseball practice fields, 2 adult softball fields, 1 Flag Football field, 1 Tackle Football field, 4 youth softball fields.  Currently under construction are 4 Tee Ball fields. We have one outdoor swimming pool open late May to September and one Senior Citizens Catfish pond which is open from May to October. 

The Thomaston Upson Recreation Department offers a variety of athletic programs including:  spring and fall baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, tee ball, flag and tackle football and cheerleading.  Class offerings include:  dance, gymnastics, karate, aerobics, and driving classes.  The Civic Center hosts many community events and is also available for rentals such as showers, parties, reunions and weddings.
