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!


In 2017 City of Ball Ground officials passed an ordinance to prohibit open burning of refuse, rubbish, brush, wood, trash, leaves, tree limbs or other combustible materials anywhere in the City.
