TOCCOA, GA – July 20, 2020 – The City of Toccoa is pleased to report that it has received a Fiscal Year 2021 Rural Business Development Grant from the United States Department of Agriculture. Grant funds will be utilized to continue the beautification, tourism, and quality-of-life upgrades at the Lake Toccoa Recreational Park and event facilities.

“Our vision for Lake Toccoa is to promote this location throughout our community and beyond as an opportunity for passive and active recreation. Families can take walks together, hobbyists can fish, and couples can enjoy a picnic beside the picturesque lakeside facilities,” said Mayor Terry Carter. “The United States Department of Agriculture has sent its staff down to personally witness the work going on at Lake Toccoa, and they have decided to invest in our vision. We encourage residents to come by and see the work being done. There will be a walking trail all the way around the lake, greater amenities, and more. There is no park like this anywhere else in Northeast Georgia.”
