Ball Ground is a growing community of nearly 2,000 residents located in Cherokee County, Georgia — just north of metro Atlanta.

Cherokee County has been listed as one of the fastest growing counties in the country, and Ball Ground contributes to that statistic with a steady influx of new businesses, jobs and residents.

Quaint shops and eateries, a mix of residential options, and the beautiful scenery of the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains — it’s a fun place to visit and a great place to live!


The City of Ball Ground Mayor and City Council will hold a Planning Retreat on Saturday, January 14, 2017 from 8:30 – 4:30 at The Corner District located at 310 Gilmer Ferry Road, Ball Ground, Ga.   This meeting is open to the public.  

Drought Response Level 2 – The Director of Georgia EPD has declared a level 2 drought condition.  Effective immediately lawn irrigation is restricted to twice weekly IF NEEDED.  Even number addresses may run irrigation on Wednesday and Saturdays between the hours of 4:00 pm and 10:00 am the following day. (not the entire time – pick a time that works for you within that window).  Odd number addresses may run irrigation on Thursdays and Sundays during the same time slots.  Outdoor use of water at a private residence to pressure wash, wash cars, driveways, and sidewalks is prohibited.   More specific details will be published shortly and a guide sheet of permitted and non-permitted water uses will be provided in the next water bill mailing.
