Pittard Park

The Pittards settled Winterville in 1796.  Emily Coile Harris, daughter of William Rutherford Coile and Laura Pittard Coile conceived the idea for this park in 1949.  Emily and her uncle Grady C. Pittard, Sr., who was the Mayor of Winterville at the time organized the community in building this park on Pittard property in 1949.  The Winterville Pavilion was completed in 2002 and was a community project funded by the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax referendum passed by the citizens of Athens-Clarke County in November of 1999.

The pavilion is available for rent by any individual or group on a first come first served basis for a minimal cost and refundable cash deposit.  There are 15 tables under the shelter and a kitchen complete with a refrigerator, oven, and stove top.  The pavilion is ADA accessible and the children's playground includes ADA play equipment.  The hours of operation are April through December from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.

If you are looking for a place to have a family reunion, wedding, company function, or birthday party, the Pailion may be just the place!
