Department History:

Tift County Recreation Department traces its history back to 1955 and over the past 40 years has blossomed into one of the top departments in Georgia. Under the direction of directors Albert R. Massey (1955-1962), E.B. Hamilton (1963-1983), Bobby Simpson (1983-1994) and Craig Sowell (1994-present), Tift County Recreation has grown from pick-up games and meager facilities to a full range of programs taking place on more than 130 acres of modern facilities.

The Tift County Recreation Department is a part of the consolidated government of Tift County and is supported by county taxes, activity fees, rentals, sponsorships and special event proceeds.

The staff of TCRD consists of 15 full-time personnel and a part-time and seasonal staff of more than 50. The main offices of the department are located at 401 N Victory Drive near downtown Tifton and only a few blocks from I-75 Exit 63 A.

Tift County Recreation is a proud member of the Georgia Recreation and Park Association and the National Recreation and Park Association.
